Impact of Physical Measures of Image Quality on Diagnosis
Digital Radiology is a relatively new development in medical imaging. One
of the challenges with this new technology is the defining image quality.
The most common image quality metrics measure the physical characteristics
of the image, which does not necessarily relate to the diagnostic utility
of an imaging system. The purpose of this research is to investigate the
relationship between two key metrics, resolution and noise, on the utility
of an imaging system for the detection of lung cancer and breast cancer.
