Radiation Safety/Quality Assurance Guides
These guides describes the type and extent of information and standards by which the New York State Department of Health will evaluate a facility's Radiation Safety/Quality Assurance Program. The Department has implemented this program to reduce radiation exposure and optimize diagnostic x-ray image quality. It is our goal to assist facilities to be more actively involved and responsible for Quality Assurance in their operations. It is important to review the program as a whole and not to become enmeshed in the everyday quality control tests. Facilities may substitute quality control tests if the tests are deemed equivalent by the Department prior to their implementation.
