Paper Abstract

General considerations in organizing a quality assurance program are discussed. The development and general features of the program at UAB, which consist of a cooperative effort between the quality control technologist, the radiological service engineering staff and the radiation physicist, are briefly reviewed. The economic efficacy of such a program is justified by comparing data on film consumption before and after the program was established and by comparing estimates of x-ray vendor contracted service cost with that of inhouse service.
