Paper Abstract

A series of mammographic cases were presented to breast screening radiologists in two conditions. The cases were of three different types, being either; two mammographic films together but presented in inverted fashion, a single mammographic film, or a close up of a mammographic feature. In the first condition the subjects were only allowed 200 ms to view the case and in the second they had an unlimited amount of time. The amount of diagnostic information amiable in a brief presentation was analyzed and the results are discussed in relation to the perceptual and cognitive factors involved in radiographic image interpretation.
