Paper Abstract

This paper raises methodological questions concerning Free-Response Receiver Operating Characteristic (FROC) analysis as used to judge the quality of images in radiology. This paper has three purposes: describing FROC analysis as used in the literature; discussing whether FROC methods achieve their objectives; and identifying several methodological shortcomings in FROC at the present state of the art that must be solved if FROC is to be fully useful.
