Abstract
This paper presents results of physical as well as psychophysical evaluations of an LCD with respect to its spatial noise. Spatial noise is quantified using a high-resolution CCD camera and a method is developed to compensate for it. This compensation method is based on a spatial noise map, derived from the CCD camera images, and on the application of an error diffusion algorithm. This method of noise compensation reduces the spatial noise by about a factor of 2. Psychophysical evaluation is performed in order to explore the dependence of human contrast sensitivity on display spatial noise. This evaluation uses the two-alternative forced choice (2-AFC) method. Aperiodic Gaussian-shaped objects, which simulate lung nodules, serve as stimuli. The detectability index, d', calculated indicates that spatial noise compensation leads to a lower contrast threshold.
