One of the fundamental goals in Diagnostic Radiology is to provide the best possible output with
minimum radiation dose and at a minimum cost to the patient and institution. To achieve this goal it
is essential that a Quality Assurance (QA) and Surveillance program be developed and implemented in
all X-ray source diagnostic departments.
Compliance Radiation Testing (QA) comprises one of the main statutory requirements for safe and controlled operation of the radiation source equipment. It is equally important to focus on safety aspect of the radiation worker (technician) handling the equipment, the patient undergoing the test and others in the immediate vicinity of the installation.
