Paper Abstract

We present here a concise survey of the major themes running through the contemporary literature on the assessment of diagnostic imaging systems. These include the concept of the ROC curve, the ideal observer, the ideal observer signal-to-noise ratio constructed from the laboratory measurements, and complications arising from the application of the ideal observer approach to clinical diagnostic systems and expert systems.
