Medical Image Perception - MRTY5132

Year - 2018

This unit of study will investigate issues pertaining to the interaction of the human reader with a medical image. It will start with an examination of the human visual system, including its characteristics and limitations. This will be followed by in-depth studies of the perceptual and cognitive factors that affect the reading of medical images, which include, but are not limited to, reader experience, task instructions and satisfaction of search (as well as other heuristics and biases). The overall aim of this unit is to ensure that students obtain an understanding of the intricacies of image interpretation, and to highlight the components of the process that are technology-independent.
