  • The XR-27 standard will help qualified medical physicists validate equipment performance by providing equipment controls and quality tools, according to the organization.

    XR-27 is the second standard that MITA has released in the past two months: In October, MITA published XR-26 Access Controls for Computed Tomography: Identification, Interlocks, and Logs, which requires software features that ensure only an authorized operator can alter the controls of computed tomography (CT) equipment.
