The aim of the research proposal was to evaluate the quality of two diagnostic x-ray machines that have been in use for 7 years of teaching at the Faculty of Radiological Technology since 2016. These parameters such as collimator & beam alignment, exposure time, tube voltage, focal spot size, linearity, reproducibility, and beam quality (HVL) will be performed according to the NCRP no.99 and the quality standards of medical diagnostic x-ray machines by the Department of Medical Sciences, Ministry of Public Health, THAILAND. Descriptive statistics will be used to evaluate the data of those parameters. The information obtained is part of it that can be used to assess the condition of the x-ray machines for future use decisions.
