Paper Abstract

Blurred-mask subtraction enhancement is useful for improving the contrast and visibility of small objects within radiologic images. The process improves visibility by equalizing large area densities and by enhancing the borders of objects within the image. This form of enhancement is applied to radiologic images in the clinical setting by using a hybrid video/ digital image processing system.
