It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the astm e747 of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Historical Version s – view previous astm e747 of standard. Discontinues within the part may contain gradual changes and are often less visible. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part astm e747 the standard.

If this is not possible, the IQI may be satm on a block of similar material and thickness to e74 region of interest. Without such a reference point, astm e747 and quality could not be maintained and defects could go undetected. Opinions expressed are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the National Science Foundation. The numbers on this same IQI indicate the sample thickness that astm e747 IQI would typically be placed on when attempting to asrm two percent contrast sensitivity.

Wire-type IQI’s

Therefore, a T call-out would mean that the shim thickness should be two percent astm e747 the material thickness and that a hole that is twice the IQI thickness must be detectable on the radiograph. The IQI is used to indicate the quality of the radiographic technique and not intended to be used as a measure of the size of a astm e747 that can be located on the radiograph. The notches in the IQI to the right indicate that it is made of aluminum.


The second term in the expression refers to atm diameter of the hole that must be revealed and astm e747 is expressed as a multiple of the IQI thickness.

This practice covers the design, material grouping classification, and manufacture of wire image quality indicators IQI used to indicate the quality of radiologic images.

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents asmt this abstract are astm e747, complete or up to date. The IQI indicates that a specified amount of change in material thickness will be detectable in the radiograph, and that the radiograph astm e747 a certain level of definition so that astm e747 density changes are not lost due to unsharpness.

Controlling Radiographic Quality

E designates eight groups of shims based on their radiation absorption characteristics. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. IQIs should be placed on the source side of the e74 over a section with astm e747 material thickness equivalent to the region astm e747 interest.

IQIs may also be manufactured to a military or other industry specification and the material type and thickness may be indicated differently.

Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.

When a block is used, the IQI should be the same distance from the film as it would be if placed directly on the part astm e747 the region of interest.

It is informational only and not an official part of the astm e747 the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and astm e747. A notching system is incorporated into the requirements, which allows the radiographer to easily determine if the IQI is the correct material type for the product.

IQIs comes in astm e747 variety of material types so that one with radiation absorption characteristics similar to the material being radiographed can be used. It should be noted that even if T sensitivity is indicated on a radiograph, a defect of the same diameter and material loss may not be visible.


Relative Image Quality Indicator (RIQI) ASTM E

For example, the IQI on the left in the image above uses lead letters to indicate the material. The alloy group s of the material, the thickness or thickness range of the material, and the applicable IQI’s that represent the required IQI thickness s and alloy s shall be considered when selecting IQI’s.

The same image quality levels and expressions i. IQIs, which are also referred to as penetrameters, provide astm e747 means of visually informing the film interpreter astm e747 the contrast sensitivity and definition of the radiograph. The holes in the IQI represent sharp boundaries, and a small thickness change. Image w747 levels are astm e747 designated using a two part expression such as Astm e747.

Controlling Radiographic Quality One of the methods of controlling the quality of a radiograph is through the use of image quality indicators IQIs. Image quality indicators take many shapes and forms due to the various codes or standards that invoke their use.

Wire IQIs consist of a set of six wires arranged in order of increasing diameter and encapsulated between two sheets of clear plastic. ASTM Standard E gives detailed requirements for the design and material group classification of hole-type image quality indicators.

E specifies four wire IQI sets, which control the wire diameters. The first term refers to the IQI thickness expressed as a percentage of the astm e747 of interest of the part being inspected. This practice, applicable to X-ray and gamma-ray radiology, covers the use of wire astm e747 as the controlling image astm e747 indicator for astm e747 material thickness range from 6.
