A minimum SNR criterion for computed tomography object detection in the projection domain.

Med Phys 2022 Jun 26. Epub 2022 Jun 26.

Department of Radiology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, 55905.

Background: A common rule of thumb for object detection is the Rose criterion, which states that a signal must be five standard deviations above background to be detectable to a human observer. The validity of the Rose criterion in CT imaging is limited due to the presence of correlated noise. Recent reconstruction and denoising methodologies are also able to restore apparent image quality in very noisy conditions, and the ultimate limits of these methodologies are not yet known.
