Abstract

ISO/ASTM 15608 covers dosimetric procedures to be followed in facility characterization, process qualification and routine processing using X-rays (bremsstrahlung) to ensure that the entire product has been treated within an acceptable range of absorbed doses. Other procedures related to facility characterization, process qualification, and routine processing that may influence absorbed doses in the product are also discussed.

In contrast to mono-energetic gamma rays, the bremsstrahlung energy spectrum extends from low values up to the maximum energy of the electrons incident on the X-ray target. Bremsstrahlung characteristics are similar to gamma rays from radioactive isotopes.
