Abstract

The radiation-detection and image-recording processes in nuclear medicine are connected in series and constitute the total image-forming process. For the commonly used analog recorder system, the image-recording process is composed of a light-exposing process followed by the photographic process. If both the radiation detector and the light-exposure systems are linear and shift-invariant, linear transfer function theory can be used to analyze the total image-forming process. This paper describes theoretical and experimental studies of the effects of the radiation-detector and the image-recorder systems on the spatial resolution of the total image-forming process.
