Paper Abstract

Imaging workstations for radiology would be used by radiologists for a number of hours each day. Such long use demands a good ergonomic design of the workstation in order to avoid user fatigue and frustration. The film-and-viewbox methods presently in use have evolved over the years since radiography became a diagnostic tool. The result of this evolution is that, despite the problems of film, the ergonomics of film reading and reporting is quite mature. This paper will use a somewhat lighthearted look at workstation design using the ideas of well-known architects and designers to illustrate points which should be considered when implementing electronic viewing systems. Examples will also be drawn from non-radiologic environments in which the user is presented with visual information for his or her integration.
