simulator

A radiation generator that operates in the diagnostic X-ray range, which can orientate a radiation beam toward a patient with parameters similar to those proposed for therapeutic radiation and afford direct X-ray fluoroscopic visualisation and imaging of the treatment area. A simulator is not designed to deliver therapeutic radiation.
