Quality control on diagnostic x-ray radiography general and radiography mobile very important and maintenance. Quality control x-ray general purpose and radiography mobile parameter same illumination, collimation and half value layer. Test illumination using lux meter, measured collimation using collimator test tool. The results showed the illumination in the general radiography and mobile radiography were ? 100 Lux. Measured collimation using collimator test tool, collimation test on general radiography was 2% while in mobile radiography was 3%. Measurements of X-ray half value layer (HVL) on general radiography and mobile radiography were performed at 70 kV and 80 kV and fixed current of 20 mAs. X-ray beam quality in general Radiography at 70 kV inherent filter voltage of 2.36 hvl and dose of 0.8831 mGy while on mobile radiography filter inherent 2.65 hvl and dose of 1,114 mGy. X-ray beam quality in general radiography at 80 kV inherent filter 2.70 hvl and dose of 1,133 mGy, whereas in radiography mobile filter inherent 2.99 hvl and dose of 1.4630 mGy.
