NEMA XR 26
Access Controls for Computed Tomography: Identification, Interlocks, and Logs
|Publication Date:||1 January 2012|
This standard applies to the particular functioning of a CT system (as covered by the scope of IEC 60601- 2-44) as it relates to who has access/permission to use the system for clinical or other uses. This includes being able to assign specific permissions to selected uses that are above those needed for daily routine scanning, such as the authorization to save protocols. This also includes provisions to secure the user interface based on a manual lock. XR 26 includes functionality for use in a facility's quality assurance program such as capturing operator and patient information as well as information related to saved changes in protocols.
This standard is not intended to change the existing service or applications access or permissions currently available on CT scanners, nor is it intended to define all access or quality assurance related functionality.
