Description / Abstract:


This Particular Standard specifies the particular requirements for the safety of DOSEMETERS used in medical practice in the PATIENT ENVIRONMENT for RADIOTHERAPY as defined in 2.104.

NOTE - DOSEMETERS not intended for use in the PATIENT ENVIRONMENT are not covered by this Standard and should meet the requirements of IEC 1010-1.

The requirements of this Standard for electrical safety, robustness and disinfectability apply to DOSEMETERS with any type of electrically connected RADIATION DETECTOR intended for use in physical contact (not electrical contact) with a PATIENT.

The requirements for performance in IEC 731 apply only to DOSEMETERS with IONIZATION CHAMBERS as RADIATION DETECTORS.

The DOSE MONITORING SYSTEMS incorporated in RADIOTHERAPY EQUIPMENT are not covered by this Particular Standard.
