1 November 1982 Human Signal Detection Performance For Noisy Medical Images
Author Affiliations +
The final step of the medical imaging process is image display to a human for interpretation. In many cases the detectability of the visual signals is limited by statistical fluctuations. Under these circumstances it is possible, in principle, to calculate the best possible signal detection performance. We find that under some conditions humans can closely approach this limiting performance.
