Quality Control of Conventional X-Ray Machine at Najran University Hospital Radiology Department

Nuha Salih Mustafa [4] | Hamed A Ismail

Abstract: The mean objective of doing quality control at diagnostic radiology department is improving the performance of x-ray equipment, so as to get high image quality and keep the radiation dose for patients and public in lower limit as possible. Therefore, the aim of this study was to assist and evaluate the conventional x-ray machines at Najran university hospital, radiology department through the quality control tests, and see if there is a radiation leakage during exposing or there is a variation of QC test from the standard limits. This practical study and which was been carried out at conventional x-ray machine, Najran university hospital, radiology department, the QC tests such as radiation leakage, kVp accuracy, reproducibility of KvP, does and time, mAs linearity and exposure time accuracy. Ion Chamber Survey Meter and Unforskvp Electrometer was used in this study for QC purpose. The data and information collected from the results of these tests showed that kVp accuracy, reproducibility of KvP, does and time, mAs linearity, time accuracy were in standard limits. Finally the radiation leakage was measured at four deferent point behind the door (A), wall (B), office (C) and control area (D), the dose rate in setting of 115 kVp and 500 mAs found that all dose rate reading in permissible range.
