Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 June 2008
Status: active
Page Count: 54
ICS Code (Therapy equipment): 11.040.60
scope:

Addition:

This Particular Standard applies to RADIOTHERAPY SIMULATORS:

- that use diagnostic X-RAY EQUIPMENT to simulate physically a RADIOTHERAPY RADIATION BEAM, so that the TREATMENT VOLUME to be subjected to IRRADIATION during RADIOTHERAPY can be localized, and the position and size of the RADIOTHERAPY RADIATION FIELD can be confirmed;

- intended exciusively for RADIOTHERAPY simulation as a prelude to intended RADIOTHERAPY, and not for any other purpose such as general diagnostic examinations;

- used within the environmental and electrical supply conditions SPECIFIED in the technical description;

- comprising the following parts:

• a system for producing an X-RAY BEAM, which simulates the geometry of the RADIOTHERAPY RADIATION BEAM;

• a system for producing images of the transmitted X-RAY BEAM, for example, either by RADIOGRAPHY or RADIOSCOPY;

• an assembly to control the size and position of the RADIATION BEAM and to delineate the intended treatment area;

• a mechanical structure that physically simulates the geometry and movements of the RADIOTHERAPY EQUIPMENT and supports the imaging system;

• a PATIENT SUPPORT system.
