We compare observations of the non-flaring solar corona made simultaneously with Hinode/XRT and RHESSI. The analyzed corona is dominated by a single active region on 2006 November 12. The comparison is made on emission measures. We derive emission measure distributions versus temperature of the entire active region from multifilter XRT data. We check the compatibility with the total emission measure values estimated from the flux measured with RHESSI if the emission comes from isothermal plasma. We find that RHESSI and XRT data analyses consistently point to the presence of a minor emission measure component peaking at log T ~ 6.8-6.9. The discrepancy between XRT and RHESSI results is within a factor of a few and indicates an acceptable level of cross-consistency.
