More Efficient Interaction Design for Radiologist Picture Archive and Communication System (PACS) Workstations


Radiologists require highly optimized computer workstation software to efficiently perform their diagnostic workflow. McKesson Medical Imaging Group’s PACS system has evolved over two decades of workflow enhancements. However, mouse and keyboard human- computer interaction remains a fundamental limitation for radiologists to fully engage with the data. This project will provide results based on experimental studies investigating the question of: if new multi-touch interaction techniques, such as the iPad, can be used to provide radiologist with more efficient and effective medical imaging solution. This will constitute a significant improvement over traditional mouse and keyboard techniques.
