Software that uses spectroscopy to measure chemical levels in the brain to detect abnormalities.
Redesign an interface for radiologists that visualizes data from spectroscopy.
Spectroscopy is data outputed from MRI machines. This data looks like the graph to the left. Each peak represents a different chemical. By knowing chemical levels, and how they change over time a patient can be diagnosed and properly treated in record time.
Extremely difficult to read, even for professional radiologists.
contextual inquiries & understanding spectroscopy
To answer these questions I talked with and shadowed numerous specialists.
exercises to digest and understand information
existing products & conduct interviews
Created to break down contextual inquiry and discover pain points, patters and needs.
Mapped out the journey of the radiologist (who would use the software) and Brainspec. This was done to understand all the people that will have touchpoints and how the software fits into the current medical system.
sketching and iterating
After all of the research and understanding Spectroscopy, I delivered several final compositions based on main uses.
Color coded to highlight low and high measurements.
Ability to dig deeper into each chemical
Ability to only look at specific metabolites that are relevant for the patient
Display 2 voxels at once to be able to compare
Compare 2 scans from the same patient to see his/her multi voxel data over time.
VOXELS COMPARED OVER TIME
testing invision prototypes with radiologists
DETAILED SCRIPT CREATED
Helpful faces along the way
Huge thanks to these mentors who volunteered their time to oversee my process and critique my work.
