  • Comparative measuring of ultrasonic fields under IEC 1157 following the 117th PTB seminar: Examination of medical equipment using measurement technology (3)


The 117th PTB seminar dealt with the examination of diagnostic ultrasonic equipment in view of harmonised measuring within the European Union. It was decided upon comparative measuring of the five most important acoustic initial sizes under IEC 1157. This report describes the readings carried out by the nine participants and their results. Also it discusses problems which appeared.

The results show good agreement for the most part, but some problems and deviations were recorded as well. Since the faults and defects causing the problems could be determined and eliminated, the difficulties were useful. The comparative measuring allowed precious conclusions to be drawn about the state of measurement technology in the field of ultrasonic exposimetrics. .
