abstract

In medical radiation department, physician makes his diagnosis by surveying the images represented to CRT or film. Due to the inherent characteristic of radiograph, the pathology features always exhibit in the form of small size image signal with low contrast and noisy staining. To investigate the detectivity of human vision on these will help to solve the problem in what condition just-noticeable differences can be detected, and then to choose proper x-ray tube voltage and current to make x-ray exposure. In this work, a software of improved 4-forced choice experiment is developed. This experiment is performed to test observer performance in more than 600 groups respectively. By ROC analyzing, an exact range of some image parameters is detected to satisfy the Rose model. Some results are obtained as follows: when observer can detect JND with 50% TPF, the minimum contrast is approximately 1%, while background intensity is 20% of the maximum intensity and the value of k in Rose model approximately varies from 2 to 3 as target area changing. The minimum contrast decreases when the background intensity is above 20%.
