Paper Abstract

Following a large ROC study to assess diagnostic accuracy of PA chest computed radiography (CR) images displayed in a variety of formats, we asked nine experienced radiologists to subjectively assess their acceptance of and preferences for display modes in primary diagnosis of erect PA chest images. Our results indicate that radiologists felt somewhat less comfortable interpreting CR images displayed on either laser-printed films or workstations as compared to conventional films. The use of four minified images were thought to somewhat decrease diagnostic confidence, as well as to increase the time of interpretation. The reverse mode (black bone) images increased radiologists' confidence level in the detection of soft tissue abnormalities.
