Abstract
Together with the Modulation Transfer Function(MIT)the Detective Quantum Effiency (DQE) forms the physical base for the description of the information transfer of image intensifiers. The measurement of the DQE relies on the determination of the signal to noise ratios in the input and output information flows. The most difficult part of the measurement is the measurement of the temporal behaviour of the combination of measuring equipment and testspecimen. The temporal characteristics of this combination determine the sampling time that is used in computing the signal to noise ratios from DC and RMS data. If the range of X-ray image intensifiers under consideration is restricted to the family of CsI inputscreen and P20 phosphor outputscreen type image intensifiers, then it is possible to design a rather simple measuring procedure, that can be used as a standard for comparing DQE measuring results.
