Medical Image Perception Society 2009 - Day one

The first day of the Medical Image Perception Society conference, held biannual, this year in Santa Barbara was filled with interesting talks. Plenty of research utilizing eye tracking as a means of obtaining data. The conference is hosted by Craig Abbey and Miguel Eckstein at the Department of Psychology at the University of California, Santa Barbara in cooperation with Elizabeth Krupinski (book1 , book2) from University of Arizona whom has performed extensive research on eye movements (among other things) in relation to medical imaging and radiology.
