Paper Abstract

The detection stage of any medical imaging system can be quantified rigorously using information theory concepts developed by Shannon. The motivation for this approach is outlined and an example of an application to computed tomography systems is given. Relationships to traditional noise/modulation transfer function analyses and to noise equivalent quanta (NEW and detective quantum efficiency (DQE) concepts are explored.
