Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 May 2014
Status: active
Page Count: 60
ICS Code (Radiographic equipment): 11.040.50
scope:

This part of IEC 61331 applies to PROTECTIVE DEVICES such as PROTECTIVE CLOTHING and EYEWEAR for the protection of persons against X-RADIATION up to 150 kV, during RADIOLOGICAL examinations and interventional procedures.

NOTE PROTECTIVE DEVICES are not intended by themselves to provide complete protection of persons, but are used to reduce the dose to persons where other methods of protection against X-RADIATION are insufficient or not applicable.

This standard deals with:

- general requirements on the ACCOMPANYING DOCUMENTS, on design and on materials used;

- sizing, particular design features, minimum ATTENUATION properties of materials, marking and standardized forms of statements of compliance with this standard.

It covers PROTECTIVE CLOTHING mainly for the protection of the OPERATOR, such as:

- PROTECTIVE APRONS;

- THYROID COLLARS;

- PROTECTIVE GLOVES;

- PROTECTIVE MITTENS;

- PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR;

and PROTECTIVE DEVICES for the protection of the PATIENT, such as:

- PROTECTIVE GONAD APRONS;

- SCROTUM SHIELDS;

- OVARY SHIELDS;

- SHADOW SHIELDS;

- PROTECTIVE APRONS FOR DENTAL USE.

The latter group of PROTECTIVE DEVICES is intended to be used during RADIOLOGICAL examinations to minimize the effects of IRRADIATION on the reproductive organs particularly with regard to genetic damage.
