Abstract

Image database extensions for functional brain images were assessed by asking clinicians questions about (i) diagnosis confidence level before and after using the software; (ii) expected and unexpected differences between patient and control images; and (iii) an overall rating of the future usefulness of this application in an everyday clinical setting. Examining the difference image of a patient compared to a normative group affects the clinicians' initial diagnosis of the patient in two-thirds of the cases. All three clinicians stated that the interface would be a useful tool when added to the clinical workup of a patient.
