Radiation protection in X-ray installations

Working Group 6.33

Profile

Thematic focus of this working group are type approval of X-ray tube assemblies, X-ray ma-chines and stray radiation sources according to the German Radiation Protection Act. Ac-cording to this law, the PTB is the only institution in Germany, which performs these type ap-provals. Type approved devices and X-ray tube assemblies can easier be placed on the mar-ket, because no individual authorisations are needed.
