Defining patient-centered design opportunities in stereotactic breast biopsy


In this research and design project, ethnographic methods were employed to define opportunities for improving the delivery of care in stereotactic biopsy procedures. Extensive observation and contextual inquiry with patients and clinicians helped shape the design of user-centered equipment, environments and interaction concepts that address three main issues: promoting patient comfort, managing patient attention, and streamlining the process and environment.
