Interpretation of mammograms is a repetitive task, and a vigilance decrement—decreased attention after many repetitions of the same task—could impair diagnostic accuracy. However, this large randomized trial found no evidence for vigilance decrement. Investigators also determined that radiologists were equally accurate at identifying abnormalities regardless of the order in which they reviewed the studies.
