Paper Abstract

This essay is intended to con-vey some reactions to the question "Image enhancement in radiological diagnosis - can it be effective?" submitted to a panel at the SPIE meeting in November 1973. The reac tions of persons who are directly involved in the mechanics of image processing are colored by optimism fuelled by acceptance or pessimism fuelled by neglect. This observer represents the radiological user and therefore may command the ob jective middle ground. Hopefully the future will be directed to types of enchancement for which greater rewards exist.
