Determination of the maximum symmetrical radiation field of X-ray tube assemblies and X-ray source assemblies for medical diagnosis (IEC/CDV 60806:2021); German and English version prEN IEC 60806:2021

Abstract

This document specifies a method for determining the largest, geometrically symmetrical radiation field at a specified distance from the focal spot where the percentage air kerma power along the principal axes does not fall below an allowable value, and it specifies how to specify this radiation field. This document applies to X-ray sources and X-ray sources with an aperture system equipped with rotating-anode X-ray tubes used in medical diagnostic radiology for techniques in which the X-ray beam relief is received simultaneously at all points on the image-receiving surface. It does not apply to X-ray sources and X-ray sources with an aperture system for special applications that require, for example, greater variations in air kerma power or specific distribution patterns.
