A suite of performance tests are defined and performed on a total of 10 primary diagnostic image review workstations. System architectures, user interface, image manipulation tools, and data retrieval rates are discussed and analyzed. Performance timings are normalized to MB/sec to remove image file size dependencies from the data analysis. Although it is likely that some performance and capacity data may be dated as this article goes to press, it is hoped that the test definitions, methodology, and baseline data will aid those contemplating equipment purchases to make a more informed choice.
