Paper Abstract

Presently available descriptors of image quality can be sorted into three categories: physical descriptors of the imaging system, measures derived from these, and empirical descriptors of human observer decision performance. A basic problem today is our inability to relate the first type of description to the third. Signal detection theory is proposed as a useful tool for attacking this problem.
