Abstract
As radiologic imaging systems continue to increase in sophistication and cost, and as the complexity and diversity of procedures performed with the systems continue to expand, both the purchaser and supplier of radiologic equipment find themselves in a quandry. How can these individuals he sure a given piece of enuipment will fulfill the demands made of it in the clinical environment? All too frenuently, a lack of understanding of technical equipment specifications by the purchaser, and an unfamiliarity with specific imaging requirements hy the supplier, combine to produce overexpenditures for radiologic equipment and unfulfilled expectations of eguipment performance. To reduce the frequency of these undesirable results, an extensive interchange of information is required between the purchaser and the supplier of radiologic equipment.
