In multidisciplinary team (MDT) meetings for colorectal and liver cancer, each patient case is reviewed while evidence, including digital image scans such as MRI and PET/CT, is presented by clinicians. Currently these images are projected onto a wall, limiting clinician interaction. While multi-touch and interactive tabletops have been used to enhance collaboration in various scenarios, some aspects such as image quality and touch resolution need to be evaluated in this particular scenario. In this paper we present the results of work conducted to test the suitability of using a DiamondTouch tabletop, a multi-touch and multi-user surface, in MDT meetings to enhance clinician interaction. © 2010 IEEE.
