The goal of this research is to construct the X-ray image output system using ink-jet printer. In order to apply the ink-jet image to medical imaging such as X-ray images, the sufficient quality of ink-jet images is required. In the first step, we measure the tone reproduction characteristics, Contrast Transfer Function (CTF), and Wiener Spectrum (WS) of ink-jet image and conventional silver halide film. The second step is the subjective evaluation performed by medical doctors using medical images printed on silver halide films and ink-jet images. We evaluate the reliability of ink-jet output system based on the results from the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis.
