Abstract

This work aimed to standardize and state” the insufficiencies outlined and variation in image quality, among some hospitals in Sudan for a common in specific radiologic examinations. A subjective evaluation of 1,103 image reproductions from “363 special radiologic procedures including Intravenous Urography (IVU), Hysterosalpingography (HSG), GIT barium studies” and Micturating Cystourethrography (MCUG), and the Entrance Air Surface Kerma (ESAK) values recorded for each procedure. The maximum scores ranged as Fully Acceptable; all anatomical structures were found to be i65.9 ±14.9, i53.2 ±21.4, i61.6 ±13.7, 53.2 ±28.86, 62.5 ±15.53 and 64.9 ±18.92 for IVU, voiding Cystourethrography, (barium swallow), (barium meal + barium follow-through), (barium enema) and HSG, respectively. In addition, the ESAK values recorded in this hospital survey were 1.9 ± 0.89, 1.85 ±0.48, 2.3 ± 0.85, and 2.1 ± 0.59 mGy for IVU, Voiding Cystourethrography, “Barium studies and HSG”, respectively. The image criteria scoring systems (ICs) were found to be valuable and proposed to endorse in daily practice in the hospitals, and coupled the radiation dose to the patient to the required image quality. This study will help to standardize the image quality of some special examinations typically used in hospitals in Sudan.
