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 four 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, 17 labs tested over 600 radiologists.

This year, the RSNA will be held online, so there will be no opportunity to recruit and test radiologists in person. In response, NCI has created a virtual Perception Lab, a web page where researchers can post links to their own online medical image perception studies. The virtual Perception Lab will not be tied to the RSNA, and we plan to have the site up for at least the current fiscal year. All medical image perception studies will be eligible, the site will not be limited to radiology studies.

Please note that this web page will only function as a listing service. Investigators will have to host their studies elsewhere. Listing on this site will not constitute an endorsement by NCI or NIH. In order to be included on the web page, studies must meet the following inclusion criteria:

  1.  Study sponsored by a university or research center, and have institute and PI approval to be featured on this page.
  2.  Study has IRB approval.
  3.  Study must relate to medical image perception.

We are planning to have the site up running by November 25, 2020. Applications must be received by this Friday, November 13, 2020, in order to be on the site when it launches. After the site launches, you will be able to submit studies electronically on the site itself.
