Abstract
A novel software programme and associated Excel spreadsheet has been developed to provide an objective measure of the expected visual detectability of focal abnormalities within DICOM images. ROIs are drawn around the abnormality, the software then fits the lesion using a least squares method to recognize the edges of the lesion based on the full width half maximum. 180 line profiles are then plotted around the lesion, giving 360 edge profiles.
