Medical Image Perception Research Studies

Researching medical image perception can improve the practice of radiology, pathology, and allied fields by understanding how experts perceive and interpret medical images, which can improve detection and diagnosis. This research explores questions such as:

  • Why does a radiologist miss signs of cancer in a CT scan?

  • What is the best way to train dermatologists to recognize cancerous skin lesions?

  • How do time pressures affect performance in mammography?

This resource supports medical image perception research by helping investigators share their studies and recruit participants.

Use the table below to find studies that are recruiting participants, or submit your own study to add to this page.

For questions, contact Todd Horowitz.

These experiments are not conducted by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). NCI features studies on this page as a resource to the extramural community. The listing of any study, PI, or organization does not imply endorsement in the study’s validity or any research entity. Only medical image perception studies sponsored by a university or research center will be featured; commercial entities will not be included.
