Abstract
Medical radioisotope scintigrams are most commonly produced as photographic images in which count densities are displayed in various shades of grey. Such photographic grey scales are used both for recording the live images from a rectilinear scanner or scintillation camera and also for digitized images displayed with computer controlled data processing systems (Fig 1). Altho gh trade-offs are usually made between the conflicting demands for high photographic contrast and wide dynamic range or latitude), conventional photographic methods are often inadequate for the display of the entire range of count densities. Moreoever, these grey scale images lack quantitative information.
