Generalized relative quality assessment scheme for reconstructed medical images


A generalized relative quality (RQ) assessment scheme is proposed here based on the Bayesian inference theory, which is reasonable to make use of full reference (FR) algorithms when the evaluation of the quality of homogeneous medical images is required. Each FR algorithm is taken as a kernel to represent the level of quality. Although, various kernels generate different order of magnitude, a normalization process can rationalize the quality index within 0 and 1, where 1 represent the highest quality and 0 represents the lowest quality. To validate the performance of the proposed scheme, a series of reconstructed susceptibility weighted imaging images are collected, where each image has its subjective scale. Both experimental results and a ROC analysis show that the RQ obtained from the proposed scheme is consistent with subjective evaluation.
