Reference EN 60601-2-29:1999
Title Medical electrical equipment - Part 2-29: Particular requirements for the safety of radiotherapy simulators
Project Number 11854
Abstract/Scope Applies to radiotherapy simulators: - that use diagnostic X-ray equipment to simulate physically a therapeutic radiation beam, so that the treatment volume to be subjected to irradiation during radiotherapy can be localized, and the position and size of the radiotherapy radiation field can be confirmed; - intended exclusively for radiotherapy simulation as a prelude to intended radiotherapy, and not for any other purpose such as general diagnostic examinations. Establishes requirements to ensure the ionizing radiation safety and enhanced mechanical and electrical safety of radiotherapy simulators; it identifies geometrical parameters that are critical for the accurate simulation of a radiotherapy treatment.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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