Abstract
This study examines an image navigation system designed for a digital workstation supported by a high-capacity, high performance video frame buffer. We compare the time required for mammographers to identify and assess changes in targets imbedded in digital mammograms viewed on the workstation compared to the time required for the same task on laser printed film viewed on a multiviewer. Preliminary results indicate that mammography screening studies can be analyzed as quickly on softcopy as on hardcopy. However, affordable hardware that supports this type of image navigation remains an important problem.
