Abstract
This paper presents a novel technique for the presentation and display of x-ray images. This technique offers in a single image the ease of interpretation of the backscatter image with the penetration information from the transmission image. The Transmission Enhanced Backscatter Image (patent pending) also combines the features from a pair of transmission and backscatter images. The combination algorithm is discussed in terms of standard image processing operations. Sample images are included as well as potential applications of the Transmission Enhanced Backscatter Images to the security inspection industry.
