Automated region detection based on the contrast-to-noise ratio in near-infrared tomography.
The contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) was used to determine the detectability of objects within reconstructed images from diffuse near-infrared tomography. It was concluded that there was a maximal valueExpand

An octahedral shear strain-based measure of SNR for 3D MR elastography.
A signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) measure based on the octahedral shear strain (the maximum shear strain in any plane for a 3D state of strain) is presented for magnetic resonance elastography (MRE),Expand
