What is defined in GB/T 10149, YY/T 0063, YY/T 0481-2016, YY/T 0590.1-2018 and YY/T 0741, and the following terms and definitions are applicable to this document. 3.1 Calibration
Calibration refers to some processing, in which the detector completes necessary operations, so that the image can satisfy the evaluation requirements, such as: background correction, gain correction and bad pixel correction, etc. These processing are linear and irrelevant to the image. 3.2 Central Axis
Central axis refers to a straight line perpendicular to the incidence plane and passing through the center of the entrance field.
3.3 Bright Image
Bright image refers to an original X-ray exposure image without the background correction, gain correction and bad pixel correction.

Dark image refers to an original unexposed image without the background correction, gain correction and bad pixel correction.
3.5 Noise Equivalent Dose
Noise equivalent dose refers to the corresponding dose when the quantum noise and the system noise are equivalent.
NOTE: quantum noise is the random fluctuation of X-photons absorbed by the detector; system noise is the inherent fluctuation of the detector system that deviates from the expected value of the stochastic process.
3.6 Linear Dynamic Range
Linear dynamic range refers to the range of X-ray incident dose changes that can be linearly detected by the detector. The minimum value and maximum value of this range are respectively represented by the noise equivalent dose and the maximum linear dose.

6.5.1 Noise equivalent dose
The test layout is shown in Figure A.1 in Appendix A. Unless it is otherwise specified, the distance from the focal point to the surface of the detector shall be 1.5 m. The X-ray field completely covers the detector surface; the central axis of the X-ray field is consistent with the center of the detector surface and perpendicular to the detector surface. a) Take the RQA5 standard radiation quality specified in Chapter 6 of YY/T 0481-2016 and the dose or gray value defined by the manufacturer as the calibration conditions to complete the calibration described in 6.1.3;
b) Collect a calibrated dark image;
c) Maintain the tube voltage defined by the RQA5 radiation quality, within the range of the noise equivalent dose value declared by the detector manufacturer, collect 4 calibrated exposure images, and record the dose value at the center of the detector surface corresponding to each image. At the center of the image collected in Step b) and Step c), select a sampling area of 64  64 pixels and calculate the variance of the sampling area. Perform linear fitting on the obtained 5 groups of dose values and the corresponding variance. In accordance with Formula (3), calculate the noise equivalent dose and calculate the coefficient of determination R2:
Where,
b---the intercept of the dose - variance curve and the Y axis, that is, the variance of the image collected in Step b);
K---the slope of the dose - variance curve.
6.5.2 Linear dynamic range
The test layout is shown in Figure A.1 in Appendix A. Unless it is otherwise specified, the distance from the focal point to the surface of the detector shall be 1.5 m. The X-ray field completely covers the detector surface; the central axis of the X-ray field is consistent with the center of the detector surface and perpendicular to the detector surface. a) Use the RQA5 standard radiation quality specified in Chapter 6 of YY/T 0481-2016 to complete the calibration specified in 6.1.3. Within the gain and dose input range specified by the manufacturer, uniformly select 5 test points (including the minimum linear dose and the maximum linear dose; the minimum linear dose can be replaced by the noise equivalent dose; if the maximum linear dose conditions cannot be achieved, approach them as much as possible); obtain the corresponding five calibrated bright images through exposure acquisition; measure the dose value at the center of the detector surface for each exposure.

c) The linear dynamic range is obtained through the noise equivalent dose and the maximum linear dose value.
NOTE: the minimum linear dose can be replaced by NED. For the measurement of the maximum linear dose, it can be approximated through the method of gradually increasing the current-time product.
