When designing the perfect digital mammography reading room, everything from lighting to furniture, to flooring and wall color comes into play. Most importantly, the right medical display can play a significant role in creating the ideal environment for the radiologist to quickly and accurately diagnose breast cancers from beginning to end of a long workday.

With millions of women screened for breast care annually, radiologists are tasked with reading tens of millions of digital mammograms. Experts are exploring ways to enhance their efficiency, productivity and comfort while maintaining a high level of accuracy. Albert Xthona, Product Manager, Mammography for Barco, describes the factors which can optimize the reading room environment as well as the importance of using best-in-class mammography displays in the latest issue of Imaging Technology News.
