Quality Management for Diagnostic Radiography - Code of Practice - Northern Territory


You will need to comply with this code if you are a third party service provider who intends to install, test, repair, service and decommission diagnostic radiography. This code provides guidance on the tests to be conducted on diagnostic radiation apparatus for quality management purposes.

This code provides that the required tests are essentially concerned with the radiation safety of X-ray equipment. As patient dose ultimately depends on the complete imaging process, the tests must be supplemented with other radiographic, sensitometric and image quality tests as part of a complete quality management program.
