Programme Overview: 

The quality of the image produced either photographically or on the monitors of a closed circuit television (CCTV) system in diagnostic radiology is depending on the human factors, technical ability and reliability of the equipment. Thus, it is important to have a quality assurance programme being implemented in both public and private hospital particularly when involving the use of irradiating apparatus and radioactive substances for diagnostic imaging. The implementation of QA programme is in line with the regulations by Ministry of Health in ensuring the diagnostic images produced are of high quality in order to consistently provide adequate diagnostic information at the lowest possible cost and with the least radiation exposure to the patient.
