Extended experience with digital radiography and viewing in an ICU environment


Journal Article

After several years of continual operation, the utility of digital viewing stations was investigated by distributing questionnaires to past and present users. The results of the questionnaire indicated that the respondents preferred using the workstations over handling film. For evaluation of line placements, chest tubes and pleural effusions, softcopy display was preferred over hardcopy. However, for analysis of air space disease and pneumothorax, images displayed on the workstation were not perceived to be as useful as standard hardcopy.
