TID 10046 Filtration

This template describes the filtration applied to a radiation beam after it has exited the X-Ray tube. It does not include inherent filtration associated with the X-Ray tube itself.

Filters move with the associated X-Ray source (within an X-Ray tube). Attenuating material that does not move with an X-Ray source is referred to as an Attenuator and is described in TID 10047.

Content Item Descriptions

Row 2

The DateTime of the beginning of the time period over which the content items are applicable.

Row 3

The DateTime of the end of the time period over which the content items are applicable.

Row 4

Identification the X-Ray source. This designation shall not change for a given source throughout the entire RDSR. It identifies the X-Ray source whose beam is being filtered. For systems with multiple X-Ray sources, each source shall be described with a separate instance of this template.

Row 5

Include for each X-Ray filter, excluding inherent filtration. Multiple instances may be included if there are multiple components of filtration present. The same component shall only be described once, using either equivalent or actual material.
