This can be most easily accomplished by averaging many acquired mask images together to form the working mask. , virtually unchanged). Another point to remember is that the flat-fielding operation attempts to remove all spatial variation in what is assumed to be a uniform imaging field. But x-ray systems have many inherent nonuniformities in addition to those caused by the detector. These include the heel effect of the x-ray tube and the different path lengths that x-rays travel through air (inverse square law) and through the filter, compression plate, and grid, whose attenuation depends on the path length.
Eighteen radiologist readers interpreted images, either in screen-film format, manufacturer’s printed digital format (default) or in digital processed format with Histogram-based Intensity Windowing (HIW) or Contrast Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization (CLAHE) image processing. Readers scored all cases using a six-point scale and ROC analysis was utilized. Baseline reader performance with screen-film were obtained through the additional interpretation of 179 UNC screen-film mammograms, matched by lesion type, breast density, and cancer status to digital cases.
