Radiologist Diagnostic Accuracy Drops As Day goes on...

(DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING) - By Rebekah Moan

A study in the Journal of the American College of Radiology compared the ability of radiologists and residents to read bone exams earlier in the day to later in the day.

Compared to later in the day radiologists experienced greater eyestrain and higher levels of fatigue. Because the radiologists had increased visual strain, they were less able to focus on images, which made the radiologists less accurate when interpreting images.
