The nature and subtlety of abnormal findings in chest radiographs.
All detected abnormal findings were recorded for 1085 consecutive chest x-ray examinations.
Each finding was classified by descriptive criteria and graded for subtlety.
Accuracy of interpretation was evaluated in a randomized sample of 100 cases using follow-up or multiple readers.
It is concluded that it is reasonable to use selected examples of these findings in observer tests when evaluating new imaging modalities such as digital radiography.
