Paper Abstract

One of the advantages of digital mammography is the ability to acquire a mammography image with a larger contrast range. With this advantage comes the tradeoff of how to display this larger contrast range. Laser printed film, and video display both have smaller dynamic ranges than standard mammography film-screen systems. This work examines performance and preference studies for display processing methods for digital mammograms.
