Abstract
THE PROPOSED RESEARCH SEEKS TO DEVELOP AND EVALUATE A DISPLAY STATION SUITABLE FOR ROUTINE CLINICAL USE IN MEDICALDIAGNOSTIC IMAGING. A DIGITAL DISPLAY THAT CAN BE SOLD AS ACOMPONENT OF PICTURE ARCHIVING AND COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM WILL BE DEVELOPED. THE INVESTIGATORS INTEND TO OVERCOME THESPATIAL RESOLUTION LIMITATIONS OF EXISTING DISPLAY TECHNOLOGY BY IMPLEMENTING HIGH SPEED ZOOM AND ROAM CAPABILITIES. OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE WILL BE EXTRACTED FROM CONVENTIONAL BASE TECHNOLOGIES BY DEVELOPMENT OF SPECIALIZEDPROCESSING AND DISPLAY HARDWARE. THE FUNDAMENTAL METHOD IS ONE OF ITERATIVE REFINEMENT OF DESIGN PARAMETERS THROUGH CLINICAL TESTING AND EVALUATION. THE PRINCIPAL EVALUATION CRITERIA WILL BE THE DIAGNOSTIC ACCURACY OF FINDINGS REPORTED FROM THE DISPLAY AND THE TIME REQUIRED TO OBTAIN THOSE FINDINGS. PHASE I ACTIVITIES WILL MODIFY EXISTING EQUIPMENT AND EVALUATE THE PROTOTYPE SYSTEM. RESULTS OF THEEVALUATIONS WILL BE USED TO DEVELOP SPECIFICATIONS FOR AN ENHANCED SYSTEM TO BE CONSTRUCTED AND FORMALLY EVALUATED IN PHASE II.
