Paper Abstract

The specification of performance characteristics for a diagnostic radiologic imaging system involves an interplay between purchaser and supplier which often results in inadequate understanding of the imaging requirements by the supplier, and unfulfilled expectations of the imaging system by the purchaser. To diminish the impact of these results, the communicative linkage between supplier and purchaser should be as strong as possible during the development of performance specifications and acceptance testing protocols for the imaging system. As an aid in establishing this linkage, we have developed a statement of performance specifications which accompanies requests for bid proposals distributed to suppliers of diagnostic radiologic equipment. This statement is presented here in its general form; certain modifications may be necessary in its adaptation to any specific radiologic imaging systems.
