Abstract

Primary objective To assess the extent to which presentation to the individual of images of their own body created during medical imaging procedures increases or decreases health behaviours such as: 1. dietary fat intake; 2. physical activity levels; 3. smoking; 4. alcohol use; 5. damaging exposure to sunlight or other sources of ultraviolet radiation. This will be considered in comparison to the impact of communicating the same findings in a way which does not involve showing the person the source images derived from the imaging procedure (such as solely through oral feedback, or a written report). Secondary objective A secondary objective is to determine the impact of this feedback on consumers': 1. understanding of the relevant condition and of the risk information they have been given; 2. perceived severity and risk of disease; 3. perceived control over the disease risk; 4. perceived effectiveness of the risk-reducing behaviour; 5. emotional response, including general anxiety and condition-specific worry.
