Abstract

Introduction: One of the obvious problems regarding radiography considered to be the
malfunction of films and repeating the test, which leads to increase was carried out in
hospital costs and irreparable radiation. The present research at shahid mohammadi teaching
hospital of Bandar-Abbas, Iran.
Methods: This decretive cross-sectional study was done within six months in shahid
mohammadi and children hospitals of Bandar Abbas, Iran. We collected and investigated
non-acceptable and disqualified films. The data was analyzed using SPSS software version
19.
Results: Out of 37336 radiography, 2119 (5.7%) were repeated. In shahid Mohammad
hospital, out of 31606 performed radiography, 1910 cases (6%) repeated films and in
children’s hospital, out of 5730 radiography, 209 cases (3.6%) were reported. In both
hospitals the highest frequency of skull radiography was estimated 20.8% and 10.9%,
respectively. The major reason for the frequency included incorrect positioning,
unsatisfactory exposure and patient motion.
Conclusion: Comparing the results of the present research with other cities in the world,
the repeated images is satisfactory, but ongoing training of radiographer, tabulation of the
exposure factor, administering the quality assurance programs and quality control could help
in reduction in images repeat.
