Paper Abstract

The major goal of medical imaging systems should be the production of an image, which affords maximum diagnostic accuracy while staying within acceptable radiation dose levels as well as acceptable economic and practical constraints. The ultimate test of an imaging system is not its aesthetic appearance, nor necessarily the specification of a particular physical measurement, but rather its diagnostic efficacy within the clinical setting.
