Legal calibrations are required for dosemeters used in diagnostic imaging in specific countries, mainly in Germany. Typical applications are conventional radiology, mammography and CT.
They are performed on a calibrated measuring instrument by a representative of the regional Calibration Authority, who compares the measured value of the calibrated instrument against a common or the authority’s own reference standard. Calibrations are performed at the PTW Calibration Lab for multiple measurement ranges and beam qualities as defined in the official type approval.
