The topic that I would like to address today is a review of system performance requirements for imaging systems in diagnostic radiology. I intend to translate subjective performance factors related to clinical aspects into analytical engineering terms; a technique that manufacturers must attempt to better understand how to adequately design image equipment. For example, consider the vascular room pictured in Figure 1. I have picked a vascular system because it offers the greatest number of interacting design factors that effect or degrade diagnostic detail or resolution. These factors include cardiac motion, patient geometry, focal spot size, ma, KVp, exposure time and image system response.
