Paper Abstract

Physician ratings of the importance of rapidly viewing images were compared with the frequency of using a 512 X 512 X 8 display station instead of film for the first viewing of chest images made in a medical intensive care unit. The overall utilization of the display station was 35%. Although there was a statistically significant correlation between utilization and the importance rating, it accounted for only a small part of the difference in the utilization of the display station and film.
