Paper Abstract

In a cooperative effort with Dupont we have been studying digitized GI images utilizing stupid and smart filters to understand how they might help the radiologist in the reduction of perception error. Specifically, we have dealt with the detection of polyps and diverticulae both by the radiologist and the computer. In this paper we show why digital techniques are needed and describe our progress in implementing them.
