The radiographic film wastage and the different parameters affecting this wastage were analysed for a 9-week period at a 600-bed University Hospital. An overall reject rate of 7.6% was found. The different reasons for rejection were evaluated, while retake rate, relation between working experience of the personnel, amount of rejected films and total film wastage in surface (m2), were registered and analysed.
