In particular, the invention includes the method and apparatus that moves the source images and the associated data using two-level of pre-fetching and caching mechanism, sequences the reading workflow (including worklist, hanging protocol, viewing sequencing), draws markup using electronic grease pan, and automatically generates the recall forms and screening reports. The user interface operates on single button and mouse wheel style to maximize the radiologists' efficiency.
