Abstract : The purpose of this research is to experimentally determine the diagnostic accuracy and interpretation speed of digitally acquired mammograms displayed on the best available display methods. We propose to conduct an ROC study comparing a film based display to the best available state-of-the-art electronic workstation. During the first year we have carried out experiments to determine the parameter values to be used for intensity windowing applied to mammograms. For both calculations and speculations, we found statistically significant improvement in detection with specified values for the intensity windows Pisano
