Develop and recommend QC and Acceptance tasts for both radiographic and mammographic diagnostic x-ray tomosynthesis systems. These tests will assess detector, system performance and image reconstructions. Some of these tests may include: planar, spatial and vertical z-axis resolution, SDNR, contrast-details, NPS, uniformity, image lag between projections, artifacts, artifact spread function, line object spread function, cllimation, distance and angle measurements, and slice thickness (slice sensitivity profile). The task group will test physical phantoms for quality assurance and image optimizations with radiation dose. The phantoms can be used for both subjective and objective evaluations. Objective evaluations will evaluate detector and image reconstructions. Subjective evaluations will assess image quality visually and/or with computer scoring.
