Title Diagnostic X-ray imaging equipment - Characteristics of general purpose and mammographic anti-scatter grids
Project Number 13344
Abstract/Scope Deals with the definitions, determination and indication of characteristics of anti-scatter grids used in diagnostic X-ray imaging equipment, in order to reduce the incidence of scattered radiation, produced particularly in the body of the patient, upon the image reception area and thus to improve the contrast of the X-ray pattern. Only linear grids are considered in this standard. This standard is intended to be applied for the demonstration of the characteristics of anti-scatter grids under test conditions.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
