>Source to External Contour Distance

(300A,0132)

2C

Distance in mm along the central beam axis from the nominal Radiation Source location to the external contour including devices associated with the patient anatomy model. For dosimetric purposes this value may differ from the Source to Patient Surface Distance (300A,0634).

See Section C.36.11.1.4.

Required if the conditions in Section C.36.2.2.5.1.1 are satisfied.


C.36.15.1 C-Arm Photon-Electron Beam Attribute Description

C.36.15.1.1 Source Roll Angle

For an Equipment Frame of Reference UID (300A,0675) of 1.2.840.10008.1.4.3.1 (IEC 61217 Fixed Coordinate System Frame of Reference), the source roll angle is the rotation of the [IEC 61217] GANTRY coordinate system about the Y-axis of the [IEC 61217] FIXED coordinate system.

C.36.15.1.2 RT Beam Limiting Device Angle

For an Equipment Frame of Reference UID (300A,0675) of 1.2.840.10008.1.4.3.1 (IEC 61217 Fixed Coordinate System Frame of Reference), the RT Beam Limiting Device Angle (300A,0679) is the rotation of the Base Beam Modifier Coordinate System about the Z-axis of the [IEC 61217] GANTRY coordinate system.
