Title Radionuclide imaging devices - Characteristics and test conditions - Part 1: Positron emission tomographs
Project Number 24441
Abstract/Scope IEC 61675-1:2013 specifies terminology and test methods for declaring the characteristics of positron emission tomographs. Positron emission tomographs detect the annihilation radiation of positron emitting Radionuclides by coincidence detection. No test has been specified to characterize the uniformity of reconstructed images, because all methods known so far will mostly reflect the noise in the image. This second edition replaces the first edition of IEC 61675-1, published in 1998. This edition constitutes a technical revision. Requirements have been changed regarding the following technical aspects: - spatial resolution; - sensitivity measurement; - scatter fraction; - count rate performance; - and image quality. Keywords: imaging, medical device

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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