Paper Abstract

In medicine, image-wise information (for example, x-ray image or thermogram) is obtained to diagnose diseases and to test the results of treatment. Being sometimes registered at low signal-to-noise values, it is not always sufficient to solve a specific problem. A method of repeated examination is widely adopted in medicine, by which it is possible to get a succession of images. Techniques of image transformations, involving detection of equipotential zones (equidensitograms, isotherms, etc.), as well as usage of pseudocolor image transformation are also widely used, thus facilitating the subsequent utilization of transformed images by the physician.
