Try something a bit different
Oct 3-5 at the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP)
Nov 25-30 at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA)

Investigators conducting research on medical image perception know that it can be difficult to attract radiologists or other experts to participate as experimental observers. For the last two years support from the NIH National Cancer Institute (NCI) has funded the Perception Lab in the Learning Center of the RSNA annual meeting in Chicago. Last year, fourteen labs tested over 200 radiologists. We are happy to announce Year 3 of the Perception Lab will run from: Nov. 25th to Nov. 30th at RSNA in the McCormick Place in Chicago.
NEW in 2018: In addition, if we get NCI funding, this year a similar opportunity will be available at the ASCP Annual Meeting, Oct 3rd - 5th at the Baltimore Convention Center.
At the RSNA Perception Lab, you can test radiologists and others on relatively brief experiments (~30 minutes maximum). The annual RSNA meeting provides an unparalleled pool of potential participants: attendance is upwards of 50,000, including ~25,000 professionals in some aspect of radiology.
The ASCP Perception Lab is a new venture that will run on the same principle. Here you will be able to recruit observers from among the approximately 2,000 pathologists, residents, and lab professionals in attendance.
We are inviting applications for investigators to participate in either lab...or both.
Applications by Aug 1 (or, at least, tell us your application is coming). If you need the application details, send a note to Jeremy Wolfe (jwolfe at bwh.harvard.edu)<mailto:jwolfe at bwh.harvard.edu)> and/or Jennifer Trueblood (jennifer.s.trueblood at vanderbilt.edu<mailto:(jennifer.s.trueblood at vanderbilt.edu>)
