During the past decade there has been a substantial growth in digital and interventional radiology. Equipment requirements and specification for digital (interventional) radiology are necessary to facilitate the purchase of proper installations for specific purposes. Inappropriate equipment might lead to increased dose to patients and staff, insufficient image quality and, for interventional radiology, to inefficient procedures and the potential for deterministic effects to occur. The equipment requirements and specifications are of various types. Requirements for dose displays and dose record keeping are deals with in a separate contribution to this workshop. Detailed information is presented in this contribution on requirements and specifications in relation to ergonomic, dosimetric and image quality aspects.
