Photoshop: scroll-grid / detail-reviewer / image-examination

In times of larger and larger file-sizes and picture-dimensions, accompanied with more details and unfortunately more sensor-dust I'd love to have a tool within photoshop to really user-friendly scroll through the image and control/check/review the image at 100% zoom.
I would like to have a kind of review-setting within photoshop to zoom in to 100%, start in the upper-left corner and remove all the dust and scratches manually, once am satisfied and done with segment I can see at 100% I would simply click at a right-pointing arrow in the navigator and photoshop would automatically mark the segment I reviewed als "clean" or "checked" (visible by overlaying the grid-segment with maybe green translucent color) and scroll one segment to the right... and so on, and so on... once on the most-right segent of the row, photoshop would start most-left in the second row.. and so on and on ... until my picture is completely reviewed and I could say with confidence "I didn't miss anything..." Chances are to overlook some dust-spots right on the edge of each grid-segment, I think the grid-segments should overlap a little.

It would be really neat being able to save the review-progress and close the picture I'm working on, sometimes one has to interrupt the work. It would be great to have photoshop knowing the exact grid-segment I was working on last time without manually scrolling there and maybe overlooking something in the process..
This would not only help with sensor-dust, but with (accidently made) selection-edges e. g. rough retouching-mistakes because of complex maskings and forgetting to substract one or more paths from the selection ... you got the point..

I would really like to participate improving photoshop.
I like what you guys are doing with Photoshop CC 2014 - the new dimesions-on-screen-display while holding the cmd-key on mac is great ! .. I use Photoshop since version 6 and have always been very happy with this great software.

Kind regards.
