(a) Example of a typical eye-position pattern generated by an experienced radiologist. The small circles represent fixations or where the high-resolution portion of the gaze lands and the lines represent the order in which they were generated. The task was to search for lung nodules. In this case there is a nodule in the lower left lung. The radiologist stopped searching the image once a fixation landed here and he correctly reported the nodule as present. (b) Example of a typical eye-position pattern generated by an experienced pathologist. The small circles represent fixations or where the high-resolution portion of the gaze lands and the lines represent the order in which they were generated. The task was to select the three areas the observer would want to magnify to view diagnostic tissue at a higher resolution.
