In this study, the quality of a radiological device manufactured by Toshiba was evaluated. For this purpose, the half value layers (HVL) of the pure aluminum have been evaluated by using the ion chamber detector in the diagnostic X-Ray energy range. Afterward, the HVLs of radiated aluminum were compared with the minimum of the aluminum HVL. Henceforth, the effective energy of the X ray tube has been calculated by aluminum HVLs. The absorbed dose in a patient's body can be calculated by radiation effective energy, which is an important parameter in medical physics. According to this study results, the investigated radiology device has an acceptable quality and suitable effective energy in the diagnostic energy range. This research can be used as a reference for half the calculation of the half value layer thickness, and as well as the effective energy evaluation of X ray devices for radiology and medical centers.
