Title Medical diagnostic X-ray equipment - Radiation conditions for use in the determination of characteristics
Project Number 15907
Abstract/Scope This International Standard applies to test procedures which, for the determination of characteristics of systems or components of medical diagnostic X-ray equipment, require well-defined radiation conditions. Except for mammography, this standard does not apply to conditions where discontinuities in radiation absorption of elements are deliberately used to modify properties of the radiation beam (for example by rare earth filters). This standard deals with methods for generating radiation beams with radiation conditions which can be used under test conditions typically found in test laboratories or in manufacturing facilities for the determination of characteristics of medical diagnostic X-ray equipment. Examples of such radiation qualities are radiation beams emerging through the filtration from the X-ray source assembly. radiation conditions represent the more general case, where scattered radiation emerges from an exit surface of a patient or a phantom. This requires a well defined geometrical arrangement.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved


(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat


(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level


(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement


(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn


(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
