Aug. 1 Deadline for NCI Image Perception Lab at RSNA 2017

In its second year at RSNA, the Medical Image Perception Lab seeks researchers to study eye movement behavior

Launched at RSNA 2016, the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Medical Image Perception Lab will continue its research at RSNA 2017. The application deadline for investigators interested in conducting research in the lab is Tuesday, Aug. 1.

The Perception Lab is designed to promote research on the process of perception and recognition of information in medical images. Researchers will test radiologists and others during sessions lasting no longer than 30 minutes.

With funding assistance from the NCI, the RSNA will build six darkened rooms, each equipped with a desk, two chairs, internet access, two 47-inch monitors and a registration area where participants can sign up for studies.

RSNA attendees are invited to participate in studies as volunteers in a lab environment. At RSNA 2016, nine labs tested over 170 radiologists.

The Medical Image Perception Lab will be located in the Learning Center at McCormick Place during RSNA 2017, from Nov. 26 to Dec. 1.

To apply and for more information, researchers should contact Jeremy Wolfe at and Todd Horowitz at
