Abstract
We report preliminary findings from a study of patient-volunteer experience in a clinical trial of optical mammography. We hypothesise that this qualitative data can usefully supplement the technical data collected during clinical tests and be of practical value in decision-making about design modifications, development priorities, and improving acceptability to patients. Findings from interviews with volunteers to date suggest that this method may establish new design criteria not deducible from routine data collection.
