  Background There is little evidence in peer reviewed literature to support the efficacy of many of the tests of x-ray equipment performed routinely by medical physics departments. Current guidance is based on the substantial experience of the members of working parties involved in writing IPEM report 91 and the IPEM report...

FLUG 2017 – A Novel Quantitative Measurement of Image Quality in Fluoroscopy; Patrick Kenny

  Measuring image quality on modern flat panel fluoroscopy systems is challenging. Accurate measurements using the Leeds TO10 must use a small range of prescribed settings of beam quality (kV & added copper). Often these are not always easily achieved on newer systems. Also, TO10 analysis involves estimating the Threshold Contrast...
