Assessment Of Paediatric X-Ray Examination Practices In Two Tertiary Health Institutions In Enugu Metropolis

Justification and optimization are the key principles in the protection of patients exposed to ionization radiation from diagnostic purposes. This is more important in the imaging of children because they are more susceptible to the effect of ionizing radiation and they have longer life expectancy compared to adults. As a result of this, there is also recent requirement for diagnostic radiology department to demonstrate compliance with these principles. A study was carried out to assess and c...

ASSESSMENT OF THE ADOPTION OF QUALITY ASSURANCE POLICY IN RADIOLOGY DEPARTMENT

ABSTRACTPresently, radiological workers appreciate the concept of quality assurance in theory due to its multi-faceted benefit especially on the economy when considering the overall cost of imaging equipment and the low cost of testing apparatus. However, they tend to neglect the practical aspect of the topic, thus leading to high rate of break down and faulty equipment. This work is therefore geared towards determining if there is any laid down policy in the radiology department in the terti...
