November 20, 2014 — Harvard scientists, in cooperation with physicians from Cottage Health System and DR Systems, will be conducting a live study at the 2014 Radiology Society of North America (RSNA) conference. The objective of the study is to assess image shuffling, a progressive reading method, relative to traditional side-by-side image comparison.
The study is being led by Jeremy Wolfe, M.D. from Brigham and Women's Hospital at Harvard Medical School; Trafton Drew, M.D. from The University of Utah and Michael Trambert, M.D. and Mark Kovacs, M.D. of Cottage Health System.
Image Shuffling is patented technology from DR Systems that allows radiologists to "flip" between overlaid comparison images. It is designed to help radiologists better perceive any differences or changes between recent and historical images.
The study being done with RSNA attendees will focus on image shuffling for its use in mammography.
All physicians attending RSNA are invited to participate in the study by visiting the DR Systems booth. Participation takes 15 minutes and all participants will be entered in a raffle to win an iPad.
DR Systems will be located in Hall B North Building at Booth #6113 from Nov. 30-Dec. 5, 2014 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.
