The imaging process has two fundamental stages: detection and display. The detection stage can be quantified rigourously using Shannon's information theory. This requires the contrast scale (CS), modulation transfer function (MTF), and noise power spectrum [N(f)] to be combined into a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). This results in two fundamental summary… (More)
The advent of computed tomography (CT) has initiated a technological revolution which continues to the present time. A brief review of basic principles of CT scanning is presented, and the evolution of modern CT scanner systems is traced. Some early indications of future trends are also presented.
Although computed tomography (CT) delineation of normal white matter of the cerebral hemispheres has been well documented, there has been no description of white matter within the cerebellum. Through the use of phantom studies, CT number correlations between cerebellum and cerebral hemispheres, and anatomic correlation with in vitro specimens, the ability… (More)
