Abstract

Increased display luminance, use of a P45 (rather than a P104) phosphor in the cathode ray tube monitor faceplate, and a perceptually linearized display lead to better diagnostic accuracy and more efficient visual search. For radiology as well as teleradiology, the viewing workstation is crucial. Spending long hours viewing very large data sets on computer screens may result in visual fatigue or computer vision syndrome among radiologists, leading to dissatisfaction among them. Teleradiology, telepathology, and teleoncology together can be used to reduce the waiting times for breast cancer patients to receive definitive care and increase significant patient satisfaction and general peace of mind.
