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.

We recommend that the IEC and committees revisit their recommendation of using aluminum with a minimum purity of An evaluation of ultra-high purity aluminum purchased from a second source All imaging tests were performed on a prototype amorphous silicon digital detector using the RQA5 beam quality.
However, images acquired with this sample demonstrated striated defects attributed to the manufacturing method, which would preclude its use in radiographic imaging applications.

This low frequency mottle significantly overestimates the 26220 at low frequencies, which in turn will cause an under-estimation of the low frequency DQE.

This finding was ultimately attributed to the larger grain size approximately mm of high purity aluminum metal, which is a well-known characteristic, particularly in thicknesses greater than 1 mm.

To achieve the radiographic beam conditions specified in the standard, we purchased scientific-grade ultrahigh purity aluminum Characteristics of digital X-ray imaging devices – Part 1: Problems with the Required Aluminum Filtration. 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 ied not 622220 when the measurement was repeated at 74 kV RQA5 beam quality with 21 mm 62220 lower-purity aluminum We will discuss problems encountered using ultra-high purity aluminum filtration for DQE evaluations.
A subsequent evaluation of ultrahigh purity aluminum, purchased from a second source, suggests, that reduced grain size can be achieved by the process of annealing. Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored.

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. 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 systems, scanning systems CCD based or photon-counting.

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.

We purchased scientific-grade ultra-high purity aluminum 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 Iwc
