Health Canada Safety Code (HCSC) 35
The Diagnostic Accreditation Program is committed to provide education materials to facilitate the implementation of standards for Quality Control and Radiation Safety as introduced in HCSC35.
The DAP website will provide educational materials to assist Radiology and CT facility staff and consultant providers to meet the DAP Accreditation Standards for Quality Control and Radiation Safety. The information provided on this website will include a summary of QC procedures for Radiography (film-based, CR and DR), Radioscopy, and Computed Tomography as well as information regarding the test equipment required.
Of note, some of the test procedures listed on this website have been modified to be more explicit and reflect the specific equipment being tested (example Y11-DR). Therefore not all test procedures on this website will link directly to the HCSC35 test procedures' numbering system.
Typical QC Test Procedures:
QC for Radiographic Systems (including DR and CR)
QC for Radioscopic Systems (including digital fluoroscopy)
QC for Computed Tomography Systems
Test Equipment for Radiology and CT Quality Control
