Beam Modifier Orientation Angle Attribute

TypeRequired (1)
Value Multiplicity1
Value RepresentationDouble (FD)

Angle in degrees of the Beam Modifier Coordinate System with respect to the Base Beam Modifier Coordinate System. The angle is a Continuous Rotation Angle, see Section C.

See Section C.

Section C.

C. Continuous Rotation Angle

A Continuous Rotation Angle is an angle in the range (-∞,+∞).

Continuous Rotation Angle represent a rotation direction and magnitude. The magnitude is not limited to be between 0 and 360 degrees.

All rotations are defined in a right-handed coordinate system, thus the direction of a positive rotation is seen as clockwise when viewed in the positive direction of the axis of rotation.

Section C.

C. Beam Modifier Coordinate System

Beam modifiers, e.g., beam limiting devices, compensators and blocks, are specified by geometric coordinates.

A Base Beam Modifier Coordinate System is defined with respect to the Equipment Coordinate System (see Section The x/y plane of the Base Beam Modifier Coordinate System is referred to as the Base Beam Modifier Definition Plane. The orientation of the Base Beam Modifier Coordinate System is such that the Base Beam Modifier Definition Plane is parallel to the x/y plane of the Equipment Coordinate System. The origin of the Base Beam Modifier Coordinate System is offset from the RT Device Distance Reference Location by the RT Beam Modifier Definition Distance (300A,0688) as shown in Figure C.36.1-1.

Figure C.36.1-1. Base Beam Modifier Coordinate System

Each beam modifier is defined in its own Beam Modifier Coordinate System with the following characteristics:

  • Defined with respect to the Base Beam Modifier Coordinate System.

  • Right-handed Cartesian coordinate system, with the positive z-axis pointing towards the nominal Radiation Source location.

  • The Beam Modifier Coordinate System rotates about the z-axis of the Base Beam Modifier Coordinate System. The orientation at a zero angle about the z-axis is the same as the Base Beam Modifier Coordinate System, i.e., the x- and y-axes are aligned.

  • The x/y plane of the Beam Modifier Coordinate System is referred to as the Beam Modifier Definition Plane.
