Paper Abstract

A practical image quality criterion was developed which is easily calculated and directly measurable and which gives consistent evaluations of system performance. The image quality merit function was evaluated for a wide variety of MTF shapes which include chromatic and nonsymmetric image errors. The results of the experimental program are that the image quality merit function is able to predict image quality within normal reader error and is linearly correlated with the measured data. The tests of the proposed quality criterion for color and black-and-white images have been limited to physically realizable optical systems producing grain-free images and to a range of image quality from excellent to unusable.
