Abstract
Radiographic information, like any other kind of information, has no value until it is presented to a human observer, in this case, the radiologist or referring physician, who will extract from, and apply, this information to benefit the patient. Information, in other words, is like the sound made by a tree falling in the middle of a forest--it doesn't really exist until there is a human receiver. The human observer is, therefore, the focus around which any radiographic information system must be developed.
