    X-ray Tube Housing The x-ray tube housing must be of a diagnostic type. The x-ray beam is generated within a vacuum tube containing a cathode with a tungsten wire filament, and an anode target, usually made of tungsten. The x-ray tube itself is enclosed in a metal housing, with a window through which the useful or primary x-ray beam passes. Diagnostic X-ray Equipment The following rules are to ensure the safe use of human-use and veterinary-use diagnostic X-ray equipment at Virginia Tech. These rules are in conformity with the radiation safety standards recommended by the Commonwealth of Virginia.

    Medical equipment uses x-rays to assist in medical diagnosis, including the progress or remission of disease states. but the Permit Holder is responsible for the safety and security of the x-ray equipment. An x-ray Permit lists approved x-ray equipment, actual equipment inventory, storage rooms, and associate users. Once approved, a Permit.   When the X-ray equipment has been installed successfully and has passed all acceptance tests, it needs to be monitored peri  odically to ensure it continues to perform according to the manufacturer’s specifications (Papp, This periodic testing is known as the quality control testing and three parts are included: visual inspection, environmental inspection, and performance testing.
