    Abstract

    ASTM F792, Standard Practice for Evaluating the Imaging Performance of Security X-ray Systems, provides test objects and methods for measuring the imaging performance of cabinet X-ray systems used at security checkpoints. The standard is widely used, with many thousands of ASTM F792 test objects utilized throughout the world. The last major revision of the standard was more than 15 years ago (2001), and since that time, several deficiencies have been noted when using the standard for testing modern systems employing multiple-view and multiple-energy configurations. Accordingly, the present work describes a new revision of the ASTM F792 standard realized as a trifurcation into three parts, each with its own separate test object and associated test method. The three parts of the standard are intended for routine testing, human-perception testing, and objective technical testing, and represent a major update to this venerable standard.
