Perceptual linearity of grayscale images based on a contrast sensitivity model is a widely recognized and used standard for medical imaging visualization. This approach ensures consistency across devices and provides perception of luminance variations in direct relationship to changes in image values. We analyze the effect of aging of the human eye on the precept of linearity and demonstrate that not only the number of just-noticeable differences diminishes for older subjects but also linearity across the range of luminance values is significantly affected. While loss of JNDs is inevitable for a fixed luminance range, our findings suggest possible corrective approaches for maintaining linearity.

Abstract

Perceptual linearity of grayscale images based on a contrast sensitivity model is a widely recognized and used standard for medical imaging visualization. This approach ensures consistency across devices and provides perception of luminance variations in direct relationship to changes in image values. We analyze the effect of aging of the human eye on the precept of linearity and demonstrate that not only the number of just-noticeable differences diminishes for older subjects but also linearity across the range of luminance values is significantly affected. While loss of JNDs is inevitable for a fixed luminance range, our findings suggest possible corrective approaches for maintaining linearity.
