Paper Abstract

In July of 2000, a new Working Group (WG33) in IEC/SC62B met for the first time to develop a new IEC standard for the measurement of the detective quantum efficiency of digital x-ray imaging detectors. Experts from meanwhile nine countries are involved. Because of the manifold systems on the market intended for different applications, it was decided to limit the scope of the standard to static systems to be used in general radiography. Dynamic systems (fluoroscopy), systems for mammography and dental systems are excluded but may be treated in additional standards later on.
