A psychophysical procedure was used to determine the difference limen for the duration of a signal that ranged from .5 to 8.0 sec. The accuracy of three rats in keeping track of the duration was… Expand
Optimizing analysis, visualization, and navigation of large image data sets: one 5000-section CT scan can ruin your whole day.
UNLABELLED The technology revolution in image acquisition, instrumentation, and methods has resulted in vast data sets that far outstrip the human observers' ability to view, digest, and interpret… Expand
Counting processes in human timing
- D. J. Getty

A subject reproducing a long duration, t, may time out either a single interval of duration t or a succession of n intervals, each of duration t/n. It is shown that a class of timing models obeying… Expand
Stereoscopic Digital Mammography: Improved Accuracy of Lesion Detection in Breast Cancer Screening
We report on a clinical trial comparing stereoscopic full-field digital mammography to standard (non-stereo) full-Field Digital mammography for detection of true breast lesions in a screening population. Expand
Stereoscopic digital mammography: improved specificity and reduced rate of recall in a prospective clinical trial.
PURPOSE To compare stereoscopic digital mammography (DM) with standard DM for the rate of patient recall and the detection of cancer in a screening population at elevated risk for breast cancer. … Expand
Staging prostate cancer with MR imaging: a combined radiologist-computer system.
PURPOSE To test the accuracy of a combined radiologist-computer system in the diagnosis with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of cancer of the prostate gland. MATERIALS AND METHODS The combined… Expand
