Oral history interviews. Medical Physics: National Digital Mammography Development Group, 1996-1997.
Interviews include: Eugene Johnston (University of North Carolina Hospital), Robert Nishikawa (University of Chicago Hospital), Donald Plewes (Sunnybrook Medical Center, Toronto), Henri Rougeot (General Electric Corporate Research and Development).
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. Phase III focused on four disciplinary areas of ground-based astronomy, materials science, heavy-ion physics, and medical physics, and a category named computer-mediated collaborations. National Digital Mammography Development Group (NDMDG) was a medical physics collaboration of Sunnybrook Medical Center (University of Toronto Medical School), General Electric, the University of Chicago, the University of North Carolina Hospital, Thomas Jefferson University (medical school and affiliated hospital), and Massachusetts General Hospital to develop and test two systems for digital mammography against each other and against analog mammography. Sunnybrook subcontracts for design and manufacturing of its system to Fischer Electronics, which effectively functions as another collaboration member. National Cancer Institute funds the collaboration with some in-kind contributions from General Electric. Project involves hardware development, image processing, clinical trials, and teletransmission. Collaboration proposals submitted in 1991 and was still operating at time of interviews.
