Rustem PACI Shkelqim KUKA Ida Muraj
Abstract: The performance of the X-ray equipment can have a significant effect on radiation dose to the patient. The practice of monitoring performance is called Quality Control (QC). All equipment should be tested for compliance with the specifications on acceptance. The testing should cover all the basic parameters including the dose rate. QC will effect to take the right image quality, right dose to patient and staff safety of patient. Regular QA testing should also be cared out during the life of the equipment. The following measurements were performed for the selected X-ray machines: Determination of every patient's exposure parameters, including: dose and dose rate, which give an immediate impression about the risk to radiations comparing to guidance levels.
