Paper Abstract

For purposes of this discussion, assume that a conventional radiographic image such as film already exists and an optional enhancement step is available as a potential diagnostic aid. To decide if the enhancement is worth the trouble, several factors have to be considered: 1. Diagnostic value of enhancement. 2. Ease and speed of processing. 3. Cost of enhancement.
