Standard Guide for Computed Radiography
|Publication Date:||1 July 2008|
|ICS Code (Optics and optical measurements in general):||17.180.01|
This guide provides general tutorial information regarding the fundamental and physical principles of computed radiography (CR), definitions and terminology required to understand the basic CR process. An introduction to some of the limitations that are typically encountered during the establishment of techniques and basic image processing methods are also provided. This guide does not provide specific techniques or acceptance criteria for specific end-user inspection applications. Information presented within this guide may be useful in conjunction with those standards of section 1.2.
CR techniques for general inspection applications may be found in Practice E 2033. Technical qualification attributes for CR systems may be found in Practice E 2445. Criteria for classification of CR system technical performance levels may be found in Practice E 2446. Reference Images Standard E 2422 contains digital reference acceptance illustrations.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
