RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Although cathode-ray tube (CRT) displays typically are used for softcopy display of radiographs in the digital reading environment, liquid crystal displays (LCDs) currently are being used as an alternative. LCDs have many desirable viewing properties compared with a CRT, but significant image degradation can occur with off-axis(More)
This Project evaluated a human visual system model (JNDmetrix) based on just noticeable difference (JND) and frequency-channel vision-modeling principles to assess whether a Cathode ray tube (CRT) or a liquid crystal display (LCD) monochrome display monitor would yield better observer performance in radiographic interpretation. Key physical characteristics,(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES This project evaluated human observer performance and that of a human visual system model (JNDmetrix) to assess whether the veiling glare of a digital display influences observer performance during soft-copy interpretation of mammographic images for the detection of masses. MATERIALS AND METHODS A set of 160 mammographic images,(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The investigators developed an efficient method for optimizing cathode ray tube (CRT) monitor performance for digital mammography, based on the correlation between the performance of human observers and the performance of a mathematical computer model of the human visual system. The investigators examined observer performance on(More)
