Although many findings from laboratory visual search tasks have been replicated in the medical image perception literature (e.g., Evans, Georgian-Smith, et al., 2013; Drew et al., 2013), there is no clear analog to volumetric images in the basic science literature. However, insight for future research directions on volumetric image search might be gained from findings on 2D visual search, as well as growing research in the realms of driving, real-world visual search, closed-circuit television (CCTV), and virtual reality.
