    Abstract

    In the area of radiography, there has been a substantial effort to find a reasonable approach in formulating standards to aid us in determining the level of performance that can be expected from a certain group of equipment and then determine desired or recommended procedures that would provide the optimum results obtainable with the equipment described.

    We now approach the area of real-time systems, those of electronic imaging and gaging, for similar purposes. In many ways, there are close correlations to the classic film techniques of radiography but there are also many areas that are unique to these electronic systems, and we must deal with them now.
