  • CRITERIA AND METHODS FOR QUALITY ASSURANCE IN MEDICAL X-RAY DIAGNOSIS. PROCEEDINGS OF A SCIENTIFIC SEMINAR HELD IN UDINE (I), APRIL 17-19, 1984.

Abstract

Experts from research, industry and public health services, involved in medicine, radiation protection and health care, came together to participate in the Seminar on "Criteria and Methods for Quality Assurance in Medical X-Ray Diagnosis" jointly organised by the CEC and the Centro di Ricerca Applicata e Documentazione of Udine. The principal aim was to survey the quality requirements in diagnostic radiology and the various approaches to quality assurance with a view to determining the most efficient procedures and the consequences of their implementation and of identifying further research needs. In the 58 papers presented at the Seminar, stress was put on the definition of image quality necessary for diagnosis, the study of parameters which influence image quality, dose and cost, and the need for simple and readily practicable measures for quality assurance. Overviews on national and international actions and programmes covered the whole range of approaches from first steps for concept formulation to specific regulations and standardization. An important issue was the description of methods and measurements of quality assurance parameters, thus providing support for quality assurance actions, for the establishment of data for training and motivating the personnel, and for backing up "good practice" in radiodiagnosis.
