C.36.2.2.3.1 RT Accessory Device Slot and RT Accessory Holder Slot Description

An RT treatment delivery unit may allow the direct attachment of one or more RT Accessory Devices to the delivery unit in RT Accessory Device Slots, identified by RT Accessory Device Slot ID (300A,0615). Such an RT Accessory Device may be for example any kind of beam limiting device like a wedge tray or an electron applicator.

An RT Accessory Device may be mounted in or on an RT Accessory Holder which is a specific RT Accessory Device. See Section C.36.2.2.14.

If this RT Accessory Holder does not provide slots, the RT Accessory Holder is referred to by Referenced RT Accessory Holder Device Index (300A,060E), for example, a block tray for a block.

If the RT Accessory Holder provides slots these are referred to by Referenced RT Accessory Holder Device Index (300A,060E) and RT Accessory Holder Slot ID (300A,0611), for example, an electron applicator holding a block tray.

Any RT Accessory Device may either be mounted in an RT Accessory Device Slot or on an RT Accessory Device Holder. Thus, for any RT Accessory Device the Referenced RT Accessory Holder Device Index (300A,060E) and RT Accessory Holder Slot ID (300A,0611) are mutually exclusive.
