The setup of an automated scanning water phantom must be concluded with a methodical functional acceptance test. This test must include mechanical, radiological, and calculational facets. Only after an acceptance test is successfully completed can data collected with a new or repaired system be trusted. An acceptance test outline was written and applied to a newly purchased Wellhofer scanning system. This testing procedure and its results are presented in this paper.
