Title Evaluation and routine testing in medical imaging departments - Part 2-6: Constancy tests - Imaging performance of computed tomography X-ray equipment
Project Number 16575
Abstract/Scope This part of IEC 61223 provides assistance in performing constancy tests on a CT scanner. It applies to those components of CT scanners which influence the image quality, patient dose and positioning. This standard - defines the essential parameters which describe the performance of CT scanners with regard to image quality, patient dose and positioning; the list of parameters to be tested can be found in section 4.5; - defines the methods of testing the essential parameters; - provides criteria to be applied in the evaluation of data for compliance with the tolerances of the parameters specified by the accompanying documents and with respect to baseline values. These methods rely on non-invasive measurements, using appropriate test equipment, performed to ensure that the functional performance of equipment meets established criteria or to enable the early recognition of changes in the properties of components of the equipment. The aim is to verify compliance with specifications affecting the image quality, patient dose and patient positioning.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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