ISO/ASTM 51608:2005

Practice for dosimetry in an X-ray (bremsstrahlung) facility for radiation processing

ISO/ASTM 51608:2005 outlines the installation qualification program for an X-ray (bremsstrahlung) irradiator and the dosimetric procedures to be followed during operational qualification, performance qualification and routine processing to ensure that the entire product has been treated within a predetermined range of absorbed dose. Other procedures related to operational qualification, performance qualification and routine processing that may influence absorbed dose in the product are also discussed. Information about effective or regulatory dose limits and energy limits for X-radiation is not within the scope of ISO/ASTM 51608:2005.
