Testing image qualityEnabling operators to determine if X-ray machines are compliant
In EU and various non-EU countries it is now a legal obligation to regularly test image quality of security X-ray screening equipment. The Standard Test Piece (STP) is designed to establish whether the X-ray machine is in compliance with current regulations. Obvious changes that might affect its performance to detect and display different densities of materials will be discovered easily.
Different models of the STP are available and optionally special log sheets can be provided. To ensure optimal performance of the X-ray screening systems, it is recommended to use the STP regularly to control that equipment is working properly and according to the legal requirements.
