Paper Abstract

The paper provides a description of methodologies and techniques required for a Training System Development in the field of Senology (TSDS), based n the exploitation of senologic images (primarily mammograms but also echographic images or MRI) and their related clinical files. The aim of such a system is to help breast cancer screening in education. This system will help assist junior radiologists in routine critical use. Development of such a TSDS requires understanding of users’ needs (expertise and pedagogy), model design and system implementation. Specifications have been derived from the experience of the senologists from the Department of Radiology of the Necker Hospital (Paris, France), Department where the training system will be implemented. To be compliant with commercial systems for digital and CAD mammograms, terminological systems used by the TSDS to describe and index data must be based on DICOM and BI-RADS dictionaries. A detailed discussion of the choice of such a method and technique is provided and their respective contribution is described.
