A study at RSNA 2014, which radiologists are invited to participate in, will seek to compare a specific technology for reading medical image exams with traditional reading procedures.

The technology from vendor DR Systems is called Image Shuffling, which was introduced in 2007. It enables radiologists to “flip” between overlaid comparison images to better perceive differences or changes between recent and historical images.

The study at the conference will focus on use of Image Shuffling in mammography. Physicians leading the study are Jeremy Wolfe of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Trafton Drew at the University of Utah, and Michael Trambert and Mark Kovacs from Cottage Health System.

Image Shuffling also could have impacts outside radiology, Wolfe says, by giving new insights into how human visual perceptions can affect clinical practice. Physicians are invited to visit DR Systems’ booth (6113) to play with the technology and give their impressions, and enter a raffle to win an iPad.
