Status of quality assurance of radiodiagnostic facilities available in certain districts of Tamilnadu and adjoining areas was studied. This study included an exhaustive survey of radiodiagnostic facilities available in the area of interest and several levels of interaction with personnel handling those facilities. It was found that status of quality assurance prevailing in larger hospitals in urban areas were by and large satisfactory, whereas
in the case of small hospitals doing grass-root level work, quality assurance was not thought about or practiced. Awareness building, continuing education, centralised facility for quality assurance checks and rigorous quality administration are necessary to improve this situation.
