Detection with multinormal data

Tag: Noise,softwareadmin @ 11:05 am

In my previous post, I showed that multivariate normal is a good model for x-ray measurements and in my last post I described the general properties of this distribution. In this post, I will discuss statistical detection theory with the normal model. I will show that the performance is characterized by a suitably defined signal to noise ratio. This will enable me to close the loop to the main topic of this series of posts, which is to explain the results in my paper, “Near optimal energy selective x-ray imaging system performance with simple detectors[Alvarez2010]”, which is available for free download here.
