Abstract
The perception of edges on computed tomographic (CT) scans appears easy but in fact is difficult. Such perception is important because it is necessary to make quantitative determinations. Diagnosis of such entities as spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal with encroachment on spinal cord and nerve roots) hinges upon an accurate knowledge of cross-sectional areas.
