A psychophysical experiment was conducted to measure the performance of human observers in detecting an exactly known signal against a random, nonuniform background in the presence of noise correlations introduced by post-detection filtering (postprocessing). In order to predict this human performance, a new model observer was synthesized by adding frequency-selective channels to the Hotelling observer model which we have previously used for assessment of image quality. This new `channelized' Hotelling model reduces approximately to a nonprewhitening (NPW) observer for images with uniform background and correlated noise introduced by filtering, and to a Hotelling observer for images with nonuniform background and no postprocessing. For images with both background nonuniformity and post processing, the performance of this channelized Hotelling observer agrees well with human performance while the other two observer models (NPW and Hotelling observer) fail.漏 (1992) COPYRIGHT SPIE--The International Society for Optical Engineering.

Purpose: We propose a deep learning-based anthropomorphic model observer (DeepAMO) for image quality evaluation of multi-orientation, multi-slice image sets with respect to a clinically realistic 3D defect detection task. Approach: The DeepAMO is developed based on a hypothetical model of the decision process of a human reader performing a detection task using a 3D volume. The DeepAMO is comprised of three sequential stages: defect segmentation, defect confirmation (DC), and rating value inferen...
We investigate the spatial contrast-sensitivity of modern convolutional neural networks (CNNs) and a linear support vector machine (SVM). To measure performance, we compare the CNN contrast sensitivity across a range of patterns with the contrast sensitivity of a Bayesian ideal observer (IO) with the signal-known-exactly and noise-known-statistically. A ResNet-18 reaches optimal performance for harmonic patterns, as well as several classes of real world signals including faces. For these stimuli...

The goal of this paper was the comparison of radiation dose and imaging quality before and after the Clarity IQ technology installation in a Philips AlluraXper FD20/20 angiography system using a Channelized Hotelling Observer model (CHO). The core characteristics of the Allura Clarity IQ technology are its real-time noise reduction algorithms (NRT) combined with state-of-the-art hardware; this technology allows to implement acquisition protocols able to significantly reduce patient entrance dose...

PURPOSE: In the current clinical practice, administered activity (AA) for pediatric molecular imaging is often based on the North American expert consensus guidelines or the European Association of Nuclear Medicine dosage card, both of which were developed based on the best clinical practice. These guidelines were not formulated using a rigorous evaluation of diagnostic image quality (IQ) relative to AA. In the guidelines, AA is determined by a weight-based scaling of the adult AA, along with mi...

: Determination of the effect of protocol modifications on diagnostic performance in CT with human observers is extremely time-consuming, limiting the applicability of such methods in routine clinical practice. In this work, we sought to determine whether a channelized Hotelling observer (CHO) could predict human observer performance for the task of liver lesion localization as background, reconstruction algorithm, dose, and lesion size were varied. Liver lesions (5鈥塵m, 7鈥塵m, and 9鈥塵m) were digi...

PURPOSE: Electronic noise associated with passive pixel (PP) x-ray angiography flat panel detectors is known to compromise fluoroscopic image quality. An active pixel (AP) crystalline silicon x-ray detector with potential for reduced influence of electronic noise is commercially available. The purpose of this work was to compare the performance of the AP vs PP x-ray angiography detectors over a detector target dose (DTD) range relevant for invasive cardiology procedures. METHODS: A total of 16 p...
