A Bayesian estimator has been developed as a paradigm for human observer performance in detecting lesions of unknown size in a uniform noisy background. The Bayesian observer used knowledge of the range of possible lesion sizes as a prior; its predictions agreed well with the results of a six-observer perceptual study. The average human response to changes… CONTINUE READING
