Determination of the detective quantum efficiency. This finding was 26220-1 attributed to the larger grain size of ultra-high purity aluminum metal. Our observations suggest that the non-uniformity of filter materials should be evaluated when measuring the DQE.

This finding was ultimately attributed to the larger grain 26220-1 approximately mm of high purity aluminum metal, which is a well-known characteristic, particularly in thicknesses greater than 1 mm. The intended users of this part of IEC are manufacturers and well equipped test laboratories. Our observations of markedly visible nonuniformities in images acquired with high purity aluminum filtration suggest that the uniformity of filter materials should be carefully evaluated and taken into consideration when measuring the DQE.
