Continuous quality control (QC) in the diagnostic imaging workflow is vital to maintain a high quality radiology department. Effective QC efforts often require time consuming, laborious work by medical physicists as they collect and analyze hundreds of images from multiple imaging systems. An example of an inefficiency that can be addressed with deep learning (DL) is in the detection of repeated and rejected x-ray images. DL algorithms were developed to perform automatic QC checks on chest x-ray images to minimize the effort and improve the accuracy of QC programs, enabling the delivery of efficient and quality care to patients.
