Paper Abstract

This experiment is the first in a series designed to determine whether radiologists will be able to work as effectively when viewing quickly alternating single images on a single display screen as when viewing two or more images simultaneously from two or more screens. The experiment was conducted with non-radiologists as subjects and non-radiological materials. However, the experimental task and materials were designed to require cognitive and perceptual processing representative of the radiologist's task. Performance and satisfaction of users who were attempting to detect the difference in two similar images were measured. Decision time was faster for the simultaneous presentation mode than for the two sequential presentations and was also more preferred. Implications of these results for the design of radiologists' workstations and for further research are discussed.
