Since publication of Report No. 1 in 1977, CT system designshave evolved and research has improved our understanding of principles andlimitations of CT systems. These changes in technology and our under-standing of them prompted the formation of this task group.This report is intended to be a source of acceptance testing procedures, aswell as an educational tool for those medical physicists whose primary re-sponsibilities lie in areas other than diagnostic imaging. In addition to ac-ceptance testing procedures, the related issues of specification writing and ra-diation shielding design are also discussed.
