Abstract


Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah melakukan uji quality control (QC) pada pesawat fluoroscopy (angiografi) di PT. Siloam Internasional Hospital Makassar, pengukuran didasarkan pada protokol QC yang dikembangkan oleh Radiological Council Western Australia. Pengukuran yang dilakukan meliputi akurasi tegangan tabung (kVp), waktu fluoroskopik maksimum, dan uji kualitas berkas/half value layer (HVL), linearitas keluaran (mGy/mAs), laju dosis permukaan II, dan kualitas citra. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa pengujian generator dan tabung pesawat sinar-x masih dalam batas toleransi yaitu 1,4%. Nilai maksimum laju dosis pasien tipikal 14,3 mGy/min, dan laju dosis serap reseptor citra sebesar 67,8 mGy/min untuk pengukuran menggunakan 20 cm phantom polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) yang dioperasikan pada mode dosis normal dan dosis tinggi.
