Ultrasound is a valuable diagnostic tool commonly used by Radiologists in breast screening. The current paper outlines the main functions that Ultrasound performs, differences between mammography and Ultrasound and why it is a topic worthy of ergonomic and psychological research. Finally, a summary of the various methodological approaches to studying Ultrasound usage and interpretation are outlined which will be used to inform the development of a new Ultrasound training application to be used by trainee radiologists.
