Paper Abstract

An evaluation of imaging systems with different resolutions was made using MTF and Contrast Detail observer performance studies. The different imaging characteristics were obtained by changing the collimator in a clinical gamma camera. Three collimators were used. The two evaluation tests (MTF and CD) agreed on the relative ranking of the image systems. We conclude that contrast detail tests are useful in spite of their shortcomings.
