Paper Abstract

When a linear image acquisition device captures an image, several noise sources impact the quality of the final image that can be digitally procesed. We have previously examined the impact of these noise sources in terms of their impact on the total amount of information that is contained in the image, and in terms of their impact on the restorability of the image data. In this paper, we will examine the effect of each of the noise sources on final image quality.
