Abstract

Various methods have been proposed to correct for the problems presented by scatter in images from single-computed tomography (SPECT). While improvement in quantitative accuracy has been reported with a variety of measures, the effect of the accuracy of lesion detection requires analysis of observer performance. Thus, this paper designs experiments using receiver operating characteristics (ROC) methodology to test the effect of the class of methods which subtract scattered counts from the image. There are designed specifically for the clinical case of lesion detection in hepatic tumor imaging with SPECT.
