Thanks Mike – nice chapter. There seems to be a LOT of interest at the moment around dx quality in Radiology. Nice to see ! Hopefully this will continue to grow.

Also I came across an excellent book chapter on the same topic that I would like to share with everyone (see attached).

Subject: [IMPROVEDX] Challenges of studying visual expertise
Some listserv readers may be interested in this new article on the challenges of studying visual expertise by Gengenfurtner & colleagues (attached). Radiologists (and other experts in visual diagnosis: pathologists, dermatologists) have a low but non-negligible rate of diagnostic error that arises in part from problems accurately perceiving and recognizing what they are looking at, a problem that has been challenging to study and almost impossible to address.
Several articles in our recent DIAGNOSIS special issue on Radiology<https://tinyurl.com/yammh8ez> spoke about this as well.
