Technological shifts and development of professional vision in radiology

This project is carried out as a collaboration of researchers at two faculties - Departments of Radiology and Radiation Physics at Sahlgrenska Academy and the Department of Education, Communication and Learning at the Faculty of Education.

The project addresses how advancements in imaging technologies challenge existing expertise and necessitates the development of new criteria and methods of interpretation. In a study of tomosynthesis, which is a technology for chest radiology, it is demonstrated how a particular educational arrangement that involves a combination of imaging tools can be used to develop quality criteria and to enhance novices' detection skills of pulmonary nodules to the level of experienced radiologists. The results also show how such arrangements allow for the display of expert reasoning in situ and how this is bound up with disciplinary knowledge. Based on these results, another study explores how tomosynthesis can be applied in fields such as visualization of pulmonary changes in cystic fibrosis and how experts jointly develop shared criteria to be applied in this novel field
