In this study, two CR receptors (Agfa CR-85X and Agfa CR-10X) and two DDR receptors (Brivo DR-F and Essenta) were characterized in terms of detector sensitivity and image quality. An in-house phantom was specially designed to accommodate image quality assessment for quick QC and is tested as a purpose of this study. The reference quantitative aspect that were used to characterize the imaging units are the correlation between Pixel Value and image receptor dose, whereas evaluation of image quality based on the modules on the in-house phantom uses new proposed metrics (coefficient of linearity, CL, and coefficient of variance, CV). Each system's unique Pixel Value-dose characteristics are also expressed in the results of the in-house phantom's metrics (i.e. CL and CV). In addition, the constancy of measured modulation transfer function suggests potential use for system quality judgment. As all characterizations (Pixel Value-dose characteristics, MTF, and new metrics) indicated on unique result for each systems, the study implies that the designed in-house phantom as well as its proposed metric can be promising to be used to characterize digital radiography systems during quick QC.
