Paper Abstract

In our institution performance evaluation checks of diagnostic ultrasound imaging equipment have in large part been carried out by medical physics staff and students. Routine tests primarily include checks for changes in machine sensitivity, depth calibration, horizontal and vertical display agreement and B-scan registration accuracy. More recently a triggered pulse burst generator has been used for evaluating gray-scale characteristics. The routine tests are now being handed over to the chief ultrasound technologist who will work under supervision of medical physics personnel.
