    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Dr. Reiser is a clinical Medical Physicist and Associate Professor of Radiology and the Committee on Medical Physics. She is board-certified in diagnostic medical physics. Her research interests focus on x-ray imaging physics, image quality assessment and image perception, and particularly on the objective assessment of imaging systems through task performance metrics. Research projects include the development and validation of model observers, and the development of realistic, anthropomorphic phantoms, with application to breast tomosynthesis, general radiography and fluoroscopy.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
