Radiology interaction

Radiologists use 30-year-old technology to interact with cutting-edge diagnostic imagery. We observed and interviewed radiologists in a range of workplaces to understand their commonly performed tasks, and assesed how haptic feedback could be used to improve the situation. We prototyped and tested an iterative series of devices that used touch input and tactile feedback to better suit their interaction needs.
