Paper Abstract

We review the general methodology and discuss practical issues of using mathematical model observers for task-based assessment of image quality in detection tasks with possible signal and background uncertainty. Various aspects of selecting a task, model observer and method of evaluation are discussed. The results of this work re a number of practical guidelines for conducting image quality studies with model observers.
