BS EN 61217:2012

Radiotherapy equipment. Coordinates, movements and scales

Status : Current, Work in hand   Published : July 2012



IEC 61217:2011 applies to equipment and data related to the process of teleradiotherapy, including patient image data used in relation with radiotherapy treatment planning systems, radiotherapy simulators, isocentric gamma beam therapy equipment, isocentric medical electron accelerators, and non-isocentric equipment when relevant. The object of this standard is to define a consistent set of coordinate systems for use throughout the process of teleradiotherapy, to define the marking of scales (where provided), to define the movements of equipment used in this process, and to facilitate computer control when used. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition, published in 1996, amendment 1, published in 2000 and amendment 2, published in 2007. This edition constitutes a technical revision to include imager and focus coordinate systems in Subclause 3.12. Beyond this Subclause, changes were only introduced where needed to include the above coordinate systems.
