Quality control of dose calibrators is essential to evaluate the accuracy of the instrument response. In this work, a GUI (Graphical User Interface) has been developed to facilitate performing and recording quality control tests of dose calibrators. The interface is capable to automate several tests which include routine checks, accuracy test, linearity test, reproducibility test, repeatability test, concordance MBq/mCi test, and geometry test. In principle, the program computes correction factors that should be applied to minimize the uncertainty of measurements and the determining factors for success or failure of each test, then visualizes the results as tables and curves into a pdf file. Therefore, this interface can be considered as an efficient tool for performing quality control tests of dose calibrators thought it is still unable to offer the correction factors for the geometry test without experiment which will be achieved by integrating Monte Carlo simulation into the GUI.
Key words: quality control tests / dose calibrator / ionization chamber / correction factors / GUI development
