Role of Cognitive Factors in Medical Image Perception

Study Details

Information about this study has been provided by the principal investigator.

This project will be used for further understanding how medical professionals interpret medical images. This study will use mammograms as exemplar medical images, but you do not need to have any specific expertise in this area; it will suffice if you are a medical professional/trainee. Through your participation, we hope to gain a better understanding of how you do what you do. This study consists of 24 trials that you can complete at your own pace. During each trial, you will be shown a mammogram, asked a series of questions about it, asked to indicate your responses using an on-screen slider. Once you complete a set of 24 trials, you may perform one or more additional sets (each with 24 new mammograms) as you prefer.
