C.8.8.25.10 Isocenter to Accessory Distance

Snout Position (300A,030D) is defined at the Control Point level and can therefore vary during the beam, causing all the accessories attached to the Snout (Applicator, Block, Compensator, etc.) to move as well.

For each accessory which is attached to the Snout and has its distance to isocenter defined at the Beam level (such as Isocenter to Beam Limiting Device Distance (300A,00BB), Isocenter to Compensator Tray Distance (300A,02E4), Isocenter to Block Tray Distance (300A,00F7) ), the prescribed physical position of the accessory is defined at the first Control Point.

This is consistent with the approach used for Beam Limiting Device Boundaries and Positions (see Section C.8.8.25.3 Leaf Position Boundaries).

For accessories which are attached to the Snout whose distance is defined at the Control Point level, such as Isocenter to Lateral Spreading Device Distance (300A,0374) and Isocenter to Range Modulator Distance (300A,038A), and are attached to the Snout, both the Snout Position (300A,030D) and the accessory distance must change by the same amount.
