Announcing a new SPECIAL ISSUE
(or Thematic Series … as we say
in the Open Access world) on
MEDICAL IMAGE PERCEPTION
Deadline: Papers will be considered for this special issue until June 1.
Imagery is ubiquitous in medicine, from screening mammograms to the displays on equipment monitoring patient status. The use of these images raises issues of both practical and basic interest. Sometimes these can be studies with medical professionals as the subject population. In other cases, the fundamental issues are studied using non-expert populations with an eye toward eventual testing with experts. This special issue welcomes reports of new research that is relevant to the field of medical image perception, broadly defined. For a CR:PI relevant review of some research in this area see:
Wolfe, J. M. (2016). Use-inspired basic research in medical image perception. Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, 1(1), 17.
