At RSNA 2016, the U.S. National Cancer Institute collaborated with the RSNA to fund the Perception Lab in the Learning Center. The goal of the lab was to serve as a centralized location where researchers could perform experiments on human perception with an audience of experts: radiologists. More than 170 radiologists participated in experiments at nine labs at the meeting.
The Perception Lab will follow a similar format at RSNA 2017, with radiologists participating in brief experiments lasting about 30 minutes in six darkened test areas. Each area will be equipped with a desk, two 47-inch monitors, and internet access.
Organizers of the Perception Lab have issued a call for research proposals, with an application deadline of August 1. Questions and expressions of interest should be directed to Jeremy Wolfe (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Todd Horowitz (email@example.com).
