Biographical details

Current research interests are mainly revolve around; Perception in Medical Imaging, Receiver Operating Characteristic analysis of performance, human performance and performance errors particularly in medical imaging interpretation, as well as identification of the impact of specific lesion features on diagnostic accuracy specially why visible cancers missed in screening mammography. I have presented at the major national and international imaging meetings including the annual meetings of the Radiological Society of North America, International Society of Optical Engineering, Medical Imaging Perception Society, Australian Institute of Radiography and Sydney Cancer Conference.
