X-Ray Equipment Audit

X-Ray Equipment Audit

Recurrent Homologation Audits of X-Ray Equipment

Ionizing radiation is potentially dangerous for patients and doctors. To keep radiation doses at the lowest levels possible, X-ray equipment is checked on a regular basis - before initial operation, at least every five years, and following significant adjustments. We inspect the benchmark return of your devices during constancy tests, can assume management of your audit deadlines on your behalf, and carry out specialized tests on computer tomography, heart catheter measuring systems, and non-medical X-ray equipment used for industry, research, and development.
