The importance of QA
Although our Radiation Protection File provides details on routine image and processing QA, there is a legal requirement for external three-yearly radiation QA checks on wall-mounted intra-oral x-ray equipment and panoramic sets (annual testing is recommended for hand-held & CBCT sets).

Critical examination testing on all new x-ray equipment prior to it being used on paitents is also a legal requirement.

In England and Wales, I work closely with the companies listed opposite, who provide competitively-priced on-site critical examination and QA visits using direct measurements to provide rapid feedback on the status of your equipment.

In Scotland, I work with Medicert who provide a complete package for dentists, including servicing as well as on site, extremely thorough, critical examination tests and routine QAs.

Please note that CEs and QAs carried out on site are not only better and quicker than a DIY postal test pack, but are often less expensive!
