Abstract
It is reported that the use of the dual-energy subtraction method enhances the abnormal shadow detection capability. However, as the subtracted image is significantly inferior to the original in signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), the x ray dosage normally used for chest x rays has not yielded subtracted images with adequate SNRs. Under these circumstances, we have concentrated on the fact that there is a correlation between the noise contents of bone and soft- tissue subtracted images although there is no correlation between the signal contents of these images. We now propose an algorithm that improves SNRs of subtraction images by reducing the noise only.
