abstract

Previously an outline model of the radiological diagnostic process has been proposed which posits the importance of the initial glance at a medical image in helping to establish an appropriate diagnosis. As part of a long tern study of knowledge elicitation in mammography we examine the amount of information available to breast screening radiologists within the initial 'glance' at a mammogram. These data are compared to those from examining the same images normally. Overall, performance in a brief presentation was poorer than in normal viewing, as expected, but was also worse than found in comparable brief presentation studies using the chest radiograph. These results are discussed with regard to the inferences which can be made about the nature of mammographic knowledge which is utilized in the diagnostic process and how it is organized within the framework of a conceptual model.
