November 21, 2012 -- The Medical Imaging and Technology Alliance (MITA) has published an interventional x-ray guidance, XR-27 User QC Standard, to help imaging facilities conduct quality testing and monitor x-ray equipment used for interventional procedures.

The XR-27 standard will help qualified medical physicists validate equipment performance by providing equipment controls and quality tools, according to the organization.

XR-27 is the second standard that MITA has released in the past two months: In October, MITA published XR-26 Access Controls for Computed Tomography: Identification, Interlocks, and Logs, which requires software features that ensure only an authorized operator can alter the controls of computed tomography (CT) equipment.
