Paper Abstract

The use of detailed performance specifications as an integral part of the purchase agreement for radiologic equipment is gaining increasing acceptance in the radiologic community. This approach to communication between the purchaser and the vendor of radiologic equipment has the potential to provide improved correlation between the capabilities of the equipment and the clinical needs to which it is applied. The approach also has the potential to create additional work for both the purchaser and the vendor with little benefit to either party, if the performance specifications and related documents are not developed carefully and methodically. As a guide to this development, the tables in this document are provided. The procedures in these tables should be followed sequentially, and the tables themselves are listed in the order in which they should be encountered in the purchase process.
