Design Calculations



Before performing design calculations, it is advisable to segregate the design parameters in to the following categories:
  • Device: parameters related to source, detector, and geometric arrangement.

  • Object: parameters defining object size, shape, density, composition, homogeneity, etc.

  • Performance: parameters that quantify the accuracy, precision, contrast, sensitivity, resolution, etc.

  • Distortion: parameters that inadvertently affect the performance of the device, such as shielding, surrounding walls and objects, natural or spurious object heterogeneity, etc.
