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.

simulator

Radiation oncology A radiation generator operating in the diagnostic x-ray range, which can orient a radiation beam toward a Pt with parameters imitating that proposed for RT, affording direct x-ray fluoroscopic visualization and imaging of the treatment area. See Radiation oncology simulation, Simulation, Therapeutic radiology treatment planning, Treatment Port.
