A collaborative research project between the Medical Systems Research Group, De Montfort University Leicester, and the School of Cognitive and Computing Sciences, University of Sussex, is examining the feasibility of utilising statistical-based principles and a structured image description language for tutoring about radiological image interpretation and diagnosis. This paper describes the construction of a sophisticated intelligent tutoring system (ITS) for the interpretation of Magnetic Resonance (MR) images in the diagnosis of cerebral disease.
