Question ID: 286423
About five years ago some researchers tracked the eye movements of pathologists looking at tissue samples for evidence (I think) of cancer. In the cases where the pathologists mistakenly reported there was no cancer, the researchers found that the pathologists' eyes had in fact lingered on the places in the slide where the evidence of cancer was. What was the paper reporting this research, and is my description of it accurate?

Hello bugbear-ga, Thanks a lot for allowing me to post this as an answer...glad that paper hit the mark for you. For the sake of completness, here's the link once again: There is a very recently-published article on this very subject, which more than likely includes a reference to the earlier study that is of interest to you. The study abstract is at: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=PubMed&list_uids=12944551&dopt=Abstract Visualising scanning patterns of pathologists in the grading of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. Thanks again, and have a good weekend! pafalafa-ga

Very quick answer that was only one step removed from the actual paper I was looking for.
