20 show these functions represented in I D im­ age space, along with their Fourier transforms in frequency space. By studying these four transform pairs, a number of important characteristics of the relation­ ships between image space and frequency space become clear. Comb Function A comb function is a series of impulses. Impulses, or delta functions, play a central role in systems theory as the identity element of convolution. In the con­ tinuous domain, the impulse is an infinitely narrow, infinitely high spike with finite area.

The areas in the original image with constant intensity, inside and outside the circle, result in a flat signal value of approximately zero (gray). Mov­ ing outward from the center of the circle, at the boundary there is a rise in the output intensity followed by a negative dip. The zero crossing between them rep­ resents the boundary itself.

Built in the near future. The dynamic range of image display systems, between the brightest and darkest pixel the screen can produce, is quite small compared to the dynamic range of the human eye. Many medical imaging modalities are also capable of a greater dynamic range than can be displayed. The display itself therefore represents a bottleneck in the overall system. 3. This is a linear function remapping the intensity of each pixel, with contrast being the slope of the function and brightness being the offset.
