A workstation-user interface for evaluating computer assisted diagnosis (CAD) methods for digital mammography is disclosed. Implementation of such an interface enables multiple, large-size images to be handled at high speeds. Furthermore, controls such as contrast, pan, and zoom, and tools such as reporting forms, case information, and analysis of results are included. The software and hardware used to develop such a workstation and interface were based on Sun platforms and the Unix operating system. The software is user friendly, and comparable to standard mammography film reading in terms of display layout and speed. The software, as designed, will work on entry-level workstations as well as high-end workstations with specialized hardware, thus being usable in an educational, training, or clinical environment for annotation purposes using CAD techniques as well as primary diagnosis.
