Abstract

BACKGROUND
The perception of quality control (QC) implementation by personnel in diagnostic radiology facilities can affect
service delivery and deprive the facilities of the benefits associated with QC implementation.The responses by
personnel working in diagnostic radiology facilities in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria, concerning the implementation of
quality control in diagnostic radiology has been assessed in order to ascertain their perception of QC
implementation.
METHOD
A total of thirty eight (38) radiology personnel from twenty radiology facilities took part in the study that was
conducted using a twenty item questionnaire that was initially tested for reliability.
RESULT
Responses from the surveyed personnel showed a positive perception for some QC items and a seeming lack of
interest in some other items.This situation may be due to the perceived lack of interest and lack of cooperation from
management of their facilities.The personnel also felt that they did not have sufficient training to implement QC and
that QC results were difficult to analyse.
