ChargeDevelop recommended QC and Acceptance tests for both radiographic and mammographic diagnostic x-ray tomosynthesis systems. Some of these tests could include: spatial resolution (MTF), slice thickness (slice sensitivity profile), image lag between projections, artifacts (e.g., zipper artifact from microcalcifications), artifact spread function, line object spread function, SDNR, contrast-detail, NPS, uniformity, collimation, and distance and angle measurements. In addition, develop methods for estimating average glandular dose and phantoms for testing image quality.
