Paper Abstract

Based on an acceptance testing procedure by means of the American Association of Physicists ini Medicine (AAPM) digital subtraction angiography (DSA) phantom described previously , experiences were gained with respect to the expected level of system performance and the image quality reproducible for typical DSA systems currently installed in the clinical environment. There were more than 20 DSA systems involved in this study and encompassed several DSA manufacturers' products. A DSA system is employed as an example to highlight the importance of the initial calibration of the DSA imaging chain, and to demonstrate the differences in the image quality obtainable for the same system.
