Radiology Quality Assurance Services
The Radiology Inspection section of the Quality Assurance (QA) Division ensure that manufacturers and vendors provide VA medical centers, outpatient clinics, and other government entities with quality radiology equipment.
Radiology Quality Assurance Program — The Radiology QA staff inspect all newly purchased radiology and computerized tomography equipment to ensure it meets federal standards and performs as advertised by the vendors from whom it is purchased. The program has also been expanded to include Pre-Warranty Expiration inspections. This new service provides facilities the option of saving money by documenting warranty work prior to expiration so that the vendor or manufacturer is obligated to repair equipment at their cost. QA specialists are also responsible for contributing their expertise to the formulation of VA inspection criteria and manuals containing VA testing protocols. Radiology QA Specialists are highly trained and certified professionals, whose focus is providing quality customer service at the best possible price.
SDC Quality Assurance Programs are designed with customer service in mind. If you need assistance or have questions regarding any of the QA programs, please feel free to contact the SDC Director’s Office at (708) 786-7505. SDC personnel are always more than willing to answer any question you may have, or direct you to the appropriate point of contact.
