Abstract

The primary purpose of this paper is to show how Digital Subtraction Radiography (DSR) can be used to demonstrate the fundamental relationships between image detectability and the factors which are most responsible for its behaviour (namely, scatter, quantum noise, image blurring whether due to the focal spot or photon detection mechanisms, and magnification). The authors use Digital Subtraction Radiography (DSR) as a vehicle to clarify, simplify and correct some contemporary notions of the physics and psychophysics of radiological image detection.
