The physician is therefore confronted with a new paradigm: the patient spends less and less time for data acquisition and the physician has to spend more and more time in front of an increased volume of data to provide an accurate diagnosis. This again is where Moore’s law finds its way. With increased compute power available, a new generation of support systems is provided to the physician through Computer Aided Detection (CAD) and/or Computer Decision Support Systems (CDSS). These new tools help the user navigate in the huge data set and provide automatic clues for the physician to focus on.
