1 May 1996 Workflow in a neuroradiology reading room using multiviewers

Two hundred examinations were tracked through the neuroradiology reading room. The median time from completing the exam to starting the interpretation was 1.6 hours for 76% and 18 hours for 24% of the cases. The delay occurred because exams done after 4:00 PM were held for the next day along with exams for which relevant prior studies were unavailable. The median times required for previewing, interpreting and consulting on a case were 7, 8 and 5 minutes respectively.
