Influence of study design on digital pathology image quality evaluation: the need to define a clinical task

Despite the current rapid advance in technologies for whole slide imaging, there is still no scientific consensus on the recommended methodology for image quality assessment of digital pathology slides. For medical images in general, it has been …

Influence of study design in psycho-visual image quality evaluation: why a specific clinical task?

Optimal joint detection and estimation that maximizes ROC-type curves

Combined detection-estimation tasks are frequently encountered in medical imaging. Optimal methods for joint detection and estimation are of interest because they provide upper bounds on observer performance, and can potentially be utilized for …
