    In breast cancer screening it is important both to improve and maintain cancer detection skills at their highest levels. The introduction of digital imaging enables computer-based learning to be undertaken outside breast screening centres using a range of different devices. The potential for providing computer-based interpretation training using low-cost devices is detailed. The results demonstrated that naive observers can be trained to recognise certain key breast cancer appearances using a low cost display monitor along with a range of HCI techniques.
