Routine quality control can help ensure equipment operates appropriately so that dose is optimized for the necessary image quality. But quality control is a team effort. This digital manual details the quality control responsibilities of the radiologist, radiologic technologist, and medical physicist for CT. Each section incorporates best practices and includes step-by-step instructions for daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly quality control tests. Based on test results, the manual provides suggestions for corrective action.
Because it’s a digital manual (PDF), you can take it with you on your iPad, iPhone, or other mobile device as you continue to improve quality in your facility.
The manual was developed by the ACR Committee on CT Accreditation: Dianna D. Cody, PhD; Doug Pfeiffer, MS; Michael F. McNitt-Gray, PhD; Thomas G. Ruckdeschel, MS; and Keith J. Strauss, MS, FACR
