Utilization of X-rays in the medical field is one way to improve public health. X-rays are one of the applications of radiation for radio diagnostics. X-ray examination using X-rays can provide information about the human body without the need for surgery. In the use of radiation technology it is realized that in addition to its use for radio diagnostics, X-rays harm the environment and living things around them, especially radiation workers. The impact that can result in cancer due to the accumulation of radiation dose exposure received by the body exceeds the specified threshold dose. Therefore safety standard guidelines that contain basic requirements for quality control (Quality Control -QC) must be obeyed. One of the test activities included in the QC program is the linearity test of X-ray radiation output.
