There are a number of very good references:
- Quality Assurance for Diagnostic Imaging, Report No. 99, National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements
- Quality Control in Diagnostic Radiology, Report No. 74, American Association of Physicists in Medicine
- Quality Management in the Imaging Sciences, Papp, J., Mosby Publishing
Due to the proliferation of digital imaging, many guidelines do no apply to nonfilm systems. The American Association of Physicists in Medicine is currently working on a publication to deal with quality control for digital radiography. Vendors of the digital x-ray systems can also provide information on quality control tests for their systems.
