Performance Parameters of Imaging Devices
The quality and detailed display of an image are affected by several parameters associated with the imaging systems. These parameters include spatial resolution, sensitivity, uniformity, and contrast, and their various features are described here in detail. A brief description of the quality control tests for gamma cameras is also included.
