Standard Practice for Computed Radiology (Photostimulable Luminescence Method)
|Publication Date:||10 August 1999|
|ICS Code (Pigments and extenders):||87.060.10|
This practice2 covers application details for computed radiology (CR) examination using a process in which photostimulable luminescence is emitted by the penetrating radiation detector, a storage phosphor imaging plate (SPIP). Because the techniques involved and the applications for CR examination are diverse, this practice is not intended to be limiting or restrictive, but rather to address the general applications of the technology and thereby facilitate its use. Refer to Guides E 94 and E 2007, Terminology E 1316, and Practices E 747 and E 1025, and 21 CFR 1020.40 and 29 CFR 1910.96 for additional information and guidance.
The general principles discussed in this practice apply broadly to penetrating radiation CR systems. However, this document is written specifically for use with X-ray and gamma-ray systems. Other CR systems, such as those employing neutrons, will involve equipment and application details unique to such systems.
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. For specific safety statements, see Section 10 and 21 CFR 1020.40 and 29 CFR 1910.96.
