Talking report approach reduces look-away time

Article

Radiologists may be able to decrease the time they spend looking away from images by funneling all of their reporting system interactions through a microphone rather than a separate report interface, according to researchers at the University of Florida School of Medicine.

Radiologists may be able to decrease the time they spend looking away from images by funneling all of their reporting system interactions through a microphone rather than a separate report interface, according to researchers at the University of Florida School of Medicine.

Speech recognition systems are expected to converge with point-and-click menu-driven interfaces in the near future to form advanced computerized transcription and reporting systems. Increasingly complex system interfaces extend the time physicians spend looking away from images, however, a trend that raises the red flag for some radiologists.

The Florida researchers instead proposed a "talking template" reporting concept, which would channel most interaction between a report generating system and the radiologist through the microphone. This approach would free the radiologist to view and manipulate the image instead of entering information on a keyboard (J Digit Imaging 2005 Jun 2;[Epub ahead of print]).
