Abstract
The factors that I consider to be absolute essentials in our quality control program at Mayo Clinic are x-ray generator calibration, sensitometric regulation of film processing, x-ray exposure technique system, and on-line quality control. Other aspects of a complete system such as measurement of x-ray tube focal spot size, radiation output checks, checks on the performance of our image systems, and evaluation of new products are desirable to improve our work; these have been incorporated as they have become available. An effective quality control program can minimize patient exposure, can improve and maintain the overall diagnostic quality of the radiographs accepted for interpretation, and can save money in the institution.
