READS is a picture archiving and communications system (PACS) display program that is tailored to allow a radiologist to efficiently perform image review tasks. In this study, the image review process was observed and functional patterns were identified. These were used to define a design that was considered to represent the optimal balance of compromises for a low-cost review station that also allowed easy addition of new functionality. As a result, a program was designed and implemented that has been found to be acceptable for image review and for special image processing function development.
