Automating image prefetching to meet reference requirements for primary reading an area having significant potential for improving the radiology service level and one to which attention has been long-due. IRES, a knowledge-based approach to image retrieval, has a natural appeal to radiologists over ad hoc rules of thumb because its embedded image retrieval knowledge is in concert with the image reference patterns and heuristics most of them use. This paper discusses the knowledge acquisition process and validation framework, presents some interesting validation results, and outlines future research directions.
