Paper Abstract

A prototype inexpensive analog microcomputer-based optical pseudocolor encoder has been developed for applications in diagnostic imaging. The system is capable of handling a large amount of information and has a high signal to noise ratio. It may be useful as a relatively economical means for transforming gray-scale images into color coded images. Pseudocoloring may be beneficial in achieving better diagnostic accuracy over gray-scale display because it has been shown to be able to increase the sensitivity of the observer to the display and it allows multi parameter presentation.
