Paper Abstract

The diagnosis of breast disease for screening or symptomatic women is largely arrived at by a multi-disciplinary team. We report work on the development and assessment of an inter- disciplinary computer based learning system to support the diagnosis of this disease. The diagnostic process is first modelled from different viewpoints and then appropriate knowledge structures pertinent to the domains of radiologist, pathologist and surgeon are depicted. Initially the underlying inter-relationships of the mammographic diagnostic approach were detailed which is largely considered here. Ultimately a system is envisaged which will link these specialties and act as a diagnostic aid as well as a multi-media educational system.
