- •A method to measure low-contrast high-noise SSP of nonlinear CT images was developed.
- •Low-contrast plastic sheet is used as a weak impulsive test object.
- •Accurate SSP is obtainable even when a test object is indistinct against noise.
- •Each different peculiar behavior of low-CNR SSP is disclosed for three IR methods.
