We propose a novel paradigm for clinical diagnostic software using a mobile multi-touch device for user interaction and dedicated monitors for image display. We show a demonstrator implementing a workflow-based breast MRI reading system tailored to multi-touch interaction. The demonstrator explores the feasibility of touch interaction for diagnostic reading of MRI patient cases. We show a patient-centric, workflow-oriented concept that is arranged around a multi-touch capable hybrid input-output device. In this contribution we introduce clinically useful concepts of the demonstrator. Firstly, a mechanism that we dubbed location awareness takes care of security issues. Reading is supported by (1) a patient browser with graphical patient history and cancer risk factors; (2) a workflow concept using hanging protocols; (3) dedicated ROI definition, annotation, and measurement tools using multi-touch gestures. Gesture concepts and interaction paradigms are introduced for int uitive user experiences while maintaining accuracy.
