Abstract

Software has been developed to aid in the management of a radiation safety quality control program in diagnostic radiology. The core of the system is a data base of radiation safety activities. Software design goals were the prioritization, scheduling, and reporting of these activities. Computerization has helped organize the timely performance of surveys necessary for compliance with regulatory and accreditation agencies. Clear, concise program documentation and reporting are also provided.
