Abstract
The purpose of this study was to develop and design a model computerized patient history form that could be used by practicing radiologists during the x-ray reading and interpretation process. We conducted a multi-observer study to determine 1) whether such a form is warranted and can be a feasible part of the reading process; and 2) what the component parts of the form and their order of appearance in the form should be. Twenty board-certified radiologists were tested in their areas of subspecialty; each radiologist read a series of 10 cases, half with and half without clinical histories. Results indicated that all those tested would use such a history if it were provided to them along with the radiographs to be read; that they prefer such a history to be brief but detailed enough to provide more information than the typical requisition does; that they prefer a rapidly accessible history; and that there are preferences about what information appears and the order in which it appears.
