Scope and object
This International Standard applies to equipment and data related to the process of TELERADIOTHERAPY, including PATIENT image data used in relation with RADIOTHERAPY TREATMENT PLANNING SYSTEMS, RADIOTHERAPY SIMULATORS, isocentric GAMMA BEAM THERAPY EQUIPMENT, isocentric medical ELECTRON ACCELERATORS, and non-isocentric equipment when relevant.
The object of this standard is to define a consistent set of coordinate systems for use throughout the process of TELERADIOTHERAPY, to define the marking of scales (where provided), to define the movements of ME EQUIPMENT used in this process, and to facilitate computer control when used.
