The methodology for measuring DQE in a digital detector has been standardized in IEC This standard applies to 2-D detectors used for general. ABSTRACT. The international standard IEC defines the measurement procedure for determination of the detective quantum efficiency (DQE) of digital. Measurement of the detective quantum efficiency in digital detectors consistent with the IEC standard: practical considerations regarding the choice of.

An evaluation of ultra-high purity aluminum purchased from a second source We will discuss problems encountered using ultra-high purity aluminum filtration for DQE evaluations. The intended users of this part of IEC are manufacturers and well equipped test laboratories.

All imaging tests were performed on a prototype amorphous silicon digital detector using the RQA5 beam quality. This part of IEC is not applicable to – digital X-ray imaging devices intended to be used in general radiography or in dental radiography; – computed tomography; and – devices for dynamic imaging where series of images are acquired, as in fluoroscopic or cardiac imaging.

As part of a larger evaluation we attempted to measure the detective quantum efficiency DQE of an amorphous silicon flat-panel detector using the method described in the International Electrotechnical Commission standard published in October Qualitative evaluation of flat field images acquired with of ultra-high purity aluminum filtration This finding was ultimately attributed to the larger grain size approximately mm ied high purity aluminum metal, which is a well-known characteristic, particularly in thicknesses greater than 1 mm.
Our observations of markedly visible nonuniformities in images acquired with high purity aluminum filtration suggest that the uniformity of filter materials should be carefully evaluated and taken into consideration when measuring the DQE.
We have no amendments or corrections for this standard. This Part is restricted to digital X-ray imaging devices that are used for mammographic imaging such as but not exclusively, CR systems, direct and indirect flat panel detector based 6220, scanning systems CCD based or photon-counting.
Measurement of the detective quantum efficiency (DQE) of digital x-ray imaging d
A subsequent evaluation of ultrahigh purity aluminum, purchased from a second source, jec, that reduced grain size can be achieved by the process of annealing. Determination of the detective quantum efficiency, specifying how the DQE should be measured and computed. However, images acquired with this sample demonstrated striated defects attributed to the manufacturing method, which would preclude its use in radiographic imaging applications.

We recommend that the IEC and committees revisit their recommendation of using aluminum with a minimum purity of This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. Problems with the Required Aluminum Filtration. This standard is not included in any packages. Qualitative evaluation of flat field images acquired at 71 kV RQA5 beam quality with 21 mm of ultrahigh purity aluminum filtration demonstrated a low frequency mottle that was reproducible and kec not observed when the measurement was repeated at 74 kV RQA5 beam quality with 21 mm of lower-purity aluminum Our observations suggest that the non-uniformity of filter materials should be evaluated when measuring the DQE.
This low frequency mottle significantly overestimates the NPS at low frequencies, which in turn will cause an under-estimation of the low frequency DQE.
To achieve the radiographic beam conditions specified in the standard, we purchased scientific-grade ultrahigh purity aluminum Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution. Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored.
