Abstract

The increasing use of digital image data in Radiology has opened the door to the routine use of numerical image-enhancement techniques. Of course, numerical image processing cannot put information into the image which is not already there. However, if some means can be found to separate diagnostic image information from noise or artifact, the diagnostic information can be extracted with post-processing. The diagnostic quality of an exam may be enhanced by such numerical manipulations, even though technically, the information content of the digitized image is reduced.
