Spatial resolution, noise, characteristic curve, and absolute luminance are the essential parameters that describe physical image quality of a display. [...] Key Method The procedures are based on a digital representation of the Society of Motion Pictures and Television Engineers pattern plus a few simple other digital patterns. Additionally, measurement techniques are discussed for estimating brightness uniformity, veiling glare, and distortion.Expand
Quality control of cathode-ray tube monitors for medical imaging using a simple photometer
TLDR
The proposed protocol requires only a photometer and the ability to generate the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) test pattern, and takes approximately 5 minutes per monitor per week to gather data.
Characterization of monochrome CRT display systems in the field
TLDR
A review of image quality assessment methods for monochrome CRTs in the field as opposed to the laboratory is presented and initial and encouraging data obtained at the University of Arizona with a CCD camera has the potential to be developed into an important tool for practical CRT evaluation for the clinic.
A brief review of human perception factors in digital displays for picture archiving and communications systems
TLDR
The effects of several factors in human perception that are specifically relevant to a digital display environment are reviewed.
An improved phantom for quality control of laser scanner digitizers in picture archival and communications systems
TLDR
A QC phantom designed especially to test PACS systems that acquire images by digitizing x-ray films is described, which provides an objective measurement of change in digital image quality over time, as well as an objective means for comparison with other systems.

TLDR
The test pattern described in this manuscript was designed to provide quantitative measures of performance for a film digitizer and provides a simple method to identify and quantify changes in digital image quality.
New Developments in Display Quality Control
New Developments in Display Quality Control 71 Broadly speaking, diagnostic imaging can be considered to have three key components: acquisition, processing, and display. Images acquired with an
Contrast sensitivity of digital imaging display systems: contrast threshold dependency on object type and implications for monitor quality assurance and quality control in PACS.
TLDR
Human observers' contrast sensitivities of circular objects with sharp edges and those with fuzzy ones were investigated and it was found that contrast thresholds for objects with fuzzy boundaries were higher than those withsharp edges.
Image quality control for digital mammographic systems: Initial experience and outlook
TLDR
Digital imaging systems used for mammographically guided digital stereotactic breast biopsy were evaluated extensively at the University of Arizona, showing that digital imaging systems have an important advantage over film-screen systems because they provide a digital signal as output that can be used for quantitative analysis.
Frequency and impact of high-resolution monitor failure in a filmless imaging department
TLDR
The results of this study support the subjective impression and those of other colleagues in the PACS community of an unacceptably high monitor failure rate and persistent image quality problems with 2,000 pixel monitors used for primary diagnosis.
Hardware and software requirements for a picture archiving and communication system’s diagnostic workstations
TLDR
Hardware and software requirements for diagnostic workstations that could be used for making primary diagnoses in a radiology department are described and enough flexibility is provided to allow the electronic systems to grow as medical imaging technology evolves.

TLDR
The results of measurements which permit determination of the maximum information content of images displayed with a high resolution CRT of a nominal pixel matrix of 2000 x 2000 adressable pixels are described, indicating, that the total number of usable pixels was smaller than the number of addressable pixels.

This preliminary study suggests that 2048-line digital displays may be an acceptable alternative to the traditional lightbox viewing method for the perception of these two abnormalities commonly seen on chest radiographs.
Effect of noise on the modulation transfer function of the visual channel.
TLDR
The effect of noise on the modulation transfer function was studied by means of threshold measurements and an attempt was made to explain the results by visual observation of the bar pattern in the presence of narrow-bandwidth noise.
