Paper Abstract

A digital video-based system was designed and implemented to assess imaging workstation human-user interfaces through time and motion studies in diagnostic radiology and radiotherapy treatment planning. This system provides a means for recording and analyzing the activities which take place at imaging workstations during initial training and active clinical use in radiology. On time-synchronized and event-stamped video tapes, the system simultaneously records the soft copy display images and workstation environment.
