Guidance for Quality Control

To assist diagnostic imaging sites with the development and implementation of equipment quality control (QC) programs for the various imaging modalities, the Imaging Physics Department has developed modality-specific quality control guidance documents. The documents provide a broad outline of the components of typical QC programs. They do not describe tests in detail. Actual QC programs may differ depending on the diagnostic imaging equipment age, patient load and available resources.

In addition, the following reference documents maybe useful for the establishment of the quality control programs.

The Imaging Physics Department at CancerCare Manitoba provides physics testing for diagnostic imaging equipment, and can assist diagnostic imaging departments in setting up QC programs, training staff to perform QC tests and identifying appropriate QC tools.
