CHAMBERS, S. and GALE, A.G., 2007. The role of ultrasound in breast screening. IN: Contemporary Ergonomics 2007 : Proceedings of the International Conference on Contemporary Ergonomics (CE2007), 17-19 April 2007, Nottingham, UK, pp. 463-468
Ultrasound is a valuable diagnostic tool commonly used by Radiologists in
breast screening. The current paper outlines the main functions that Ultrasound
performs, differences between mammography and Ultrasound and why it is a
topic worthy of ergonomic and psychological research. Finally, a summary of
the various methodological approaches to studying Ultrasound usage and
interpretation are outlined which will be used to inform the development of a
new Ultrasound training application to be used by trainee radiologists.
