Book Description

“This book presents the technology evaluation methodology from the point of view of radiological physics and contrasts the purely physical evaluation of image quality with the determination of diagnostic outcome through the study of observer performance. The reader is taken through the arguments with concrete examples illustrated by code in R an open source statistical language.”
–  from the Foreword by Prof. Harold L. Kundel Department of Radiology Perelman School of Medicine University of Pennsylvania

“This book will benefit individuals interested in observer performance evaluations in diagnostic medical imaging and provide additional insights to those that have worked in the field for many years.”
– Prof. Gary T. Barnes Department of Radiology University of Alabama at Birmingham

This book provides a complete introductory overview of this growing field and its applications in medical imaging utilizing worked examples and exercises to demystify statistics for readers of any background. It includes a tutorial on the use of the open source widely used R software as well as basic statistical background before addressing localization tasks common in medical imaging. The coverage includes a discussion of study design basics and the use of the techniques in imaging system optimization memory effects in clinical interpretations predictions of clinical task performance alternatives to ROC analysis and non-medical applications.

Dev P. Chakraborty PhD is a clinical diagnostic imaging physicist certified by the American Board of Radiology in Diagnostic Radiological Physics and Medical Nuclear Physics. He has held faculty positions at the University of Alabama at Birmingham University of Pennsylvania and most recently at the University of Pittsburgh.
