Standard practice for marking medical devices and other items for safety in the magnetic resonance environment

IEC 62570:2014 applies to the practice of marking of items that might be used in the magnetic resonance (MR) environment. The purpose of this practice is to mark items that might be brought into the MR environment and to recommend information that should be included in the marking. The standard specifies the permanent marking of items, which are used in an MR environment, by means of terms and icons. MR image artifacts are not considered to be a performance issue and so are not addressed in this international standard practice. IEC 62570 is integrating the unmodified text of ASTM F2503-13. It has been developed by subcommittee 62B: Diagnostic imaging equipment, of IEC technical committee 62: Medical equipment in medical practice, in collaboration with ASTM.

Standardverfahren für die Kennzeichnung medizinischer Geräte und anderer Gegenstände zur Sicherheit in der Umgebung von Magnetresonanzeinrichtungen

Pratiques normalisées relatives au marquage des appareils médicaux et des éléments de sûreté divers dédiés aux environnements de résonance magnétique

L'IEC 62570:2014 s'applique aux pratiques de marquage des éléments qui pourraient être utilisés dans des environnements de résonance magnétique (RM). L'objectif de cette pratique est de marquer les éléments qui peuvent ne pas être installés dans un environnement de RM, mais aussi d'indiquer les informations qu'il convient d'intégrer au marquage. La norme spécifie le marquage permanent des éléments utilisés dans un environnement de RM via des termes et symboles. Les artefacts d'image à RM ne constituent pas un problème de performance et ne sont donc pas abordés dans cette pratique internationale normalisée. Les valeurs indiquées dans des unités SI doivent être considérées comme normalisées. Aucune autre unité de mesure n'est utilisée dans cette norme. L'IEC 62570 comprend le texte non modifié de la ASTM F2503-13. Elle a été établie par le sous-comité 62B: Appareils d'imagerie de diagnostic, du comité d'études 62 de l'IEC: Equipements électriques dans la pratique médicale, en collaboration avec la ASTM.

Oprema z magnetno resonanco za medicinsko slikanje - Navodila za označevanje predmetov znotraj nadzorovanega območja

Ta standard se nanaša na prakso označevanja predmetov, ki bi se lahko uporabljali v okolju magnetne resonance (MR). Namen te prakse je označevanje predmetov, ki bi se lahko vnesli v okolje MR, in priporočiti informacije, ki bi jih bilo smiselno vključiti v oznako. Standard določa trajno označevanje predmetov, ki se uporabljajo v okolju MR, in sicer z izrazi in ikonami. Artefakti pri slikah v okviru MR se ne štejejo za težavo pri delovanju, zato niso obravnavani v praksi tega mednarodnega standarda (glej točko X1.5). Vrednosti, podane v enotah SI, se štejejo za standard. V tem standardu niso vključene druge merilne enote. Ta standard ne obravnava vseh morebitnih varnostnih težav, ki se nanašajo na njegovo uporabo. Za vzpostavitev ustreznih varnostnih in zdravstvenih praks ter za določitev uporabnosti regulativnih omejitev pred uporabo je odgovoren uporabnik tega standarda.
