Radiation protection instrumentation – Cargo/vehicle radiographic inspection system
|Publication Date:||1 June 2010|
|ICS Code (Radiation protection):||13.280|
This International Standard applies to radiographic inspection systems with photon radiation energy of at least 500 keV for inspection of cargo, vehicles and cargo containers.
Such inspection systems generally consist of radiation source(s), detectors, control system, image processing system, radiation safety system and other auxiliary devices/facilities.
The object of this standard is to define the tests and the relevant testing methods for determining the performance characteristics of the radiographic inspection systems.
This standard is not applicable to those cargo/vehicle inspection systems using neutron source radiography, computed tomography or backscatter technology.
