Introduction: One of the obvious problems regarding radiography considered to be the malfunction of films and repeating the test, which leads to increase was carried out in hospital costs and irreparable radiation. The present research at shahid mohammadi teaching hospital of Bandar-Abbas, Iran. Methods: This decretive cross-sectional study was done within six months in shahid mohammadi and children hospitals of Bandar Abbas, Iran. We collected and investigated non-acceptable and disqualified films. The data was analyzed using SPSS software version 19. Results: Out of 37336 radiography, 2119 (5.7%) were repeated. In shahid Mohammad hospital, out of 31606 performed radiography, 1910 cases (6%) repeated films and in children’s hospital, out of 5730 radiography, 209 cases (3.6%) were reported. In both hospitals the highest frequency of skull radiography was estimated 20.8% and 10.9%, respectively. The major reason for the frequency included incorrect positioning, unsatisfactory exposure and patient motion. Conclusion: Comparing the results of the present research with other cities in the world, the repeated images is satisfactory, but ongoing training of radiographer, tabulation of the exposure factor, administering the quality assurance programs and quality control could help in reduction in images repeat.
