Paper Abstract

Some work is described involving the development and evaluation of methods for enhancing significant features in images used for non-invasive examination of the human body. The objective is to facilitate diagnosis by a human observer. For example, computer simulated coherent image processing is shown to be effective for correcting imperfect point spread function, and for filtering out noise due to the random emission of photons. Finally, an attempt to eliminate completely the human element in obtaining a diagnosis from gamma scans of the liver is described, which uses machine pattern recognition.
