without duplex wire on the CR

Is there any standards that duplex wire may be omitted by agreement of the CEO or the contracting parties on the Computed Radiography?


If yes, which standard does this information have?

Also, without using duplex wire method, I would like to know how to determine Basic Special Resolution for Normalized SNR value on the CR.

Thanks in advance for support!

Even if some standards may not require duplex wire, you should always use duplex wire for CR and DR. This is essential for spatial resolution that can vary between systems and IP plates

Hallo Anne,

several strange questions. How to find any standard stating that existing means of quality control should NOT be applied? This makes NO sense.
If you omit the duplex wire IQI, you can not measure the basic spatial resolution. This is the major use of this IQI! Of course, you could rely on the parameters given by your vendor. But good NDT is to measure and confirm....
Best regards
Uwe Z.

Hallo Uwe Z

Thank you for replying me.
I just start to learn about CR.
I'm afraid that my question was not clear.

My vendor want to use wire type IQI(s) instead of duplex wire to measure basic spatial resolution for CR. That's why I've been searching for something relevant through ISO or ASTM standards, but I couldn't find it yet.

I think there are different purposes between wire type IQI and duplex wire.
Can I measure basic spatial resolution only wire IQI(s) instead of duplex wire?

Let me know any information about it. I need to learn more!

If you know something about it, reply me again. Thanks!!

For CR you need to meet three separate requirements

IQI single wire for sensitivity
Duplex for spatial resolution.
Signal to Noise Ratio.

These are independent and essential for good CR
Take No shortcuts and don’t look for loopholes in codes

Dear Anne.
The single wire IQI is used exclusively to evaluate the contrast in your image. Therefore the wires have to be of the same material like your object to be inspected. The contrast of single wires is of course influenced by the basic spatial resolution of your image, but sinle wires are NOT suitable for measurement of basic spatial resolution. For this measurement the Duplex wire IQI was invented in the 1970ths by the CERL in U.K. Here you have wire pairs of platinium, and from the seperation of the wire pairs you calculate the basic spatial resulution. The gap between the pair is the essential feature for basib spatial resolution, which is missing at the single wire IQI. Therfore, single wire IQIs are not siutable for basic spatial resoluion measurement.
Best regards
Uwe Z.

Hi anne,

Like you I am also confused to provide calibration of x-ray system like sensitivity, magnification and resolution to one of our customer. Please let me know how to calibrate and process of this three things.

Thanks in advance for your valuable information.

Hallo,
description and usage of the duplex wire IQI is described clearly in ISO 19232-5. So please look at this standard.
Best regards
Uwe Z.

Hello,
so what mean steatment "The use of a duplex wire IQI (ISO 19232-5) for production radiographs is not compulsory." This sentence is in the standards: ISO 16371-2:2017; EN 12681-2:2017 and ISO 17636-2:2013.
Kind regards,

Gustaw
