Abstract IEC/TR 62799:2013(E), which is a technical report, provides background information for users of IEC 62359 to understand the relative merits of several of the potential replacements for the thermal index as described in IEC 60601-2-37 and IEC 62359. The report discusses parameters related to thermal aspects of diagnostic ultrasonic fields; and methods for the determination of an exposure parameter relating to temperature rise in theoretical tissue-equivalent models, resulting from absorption of ultrasound. The report is intended to be used:
- by those involved in the development and maintenance of IEC 62359;
- manufacturers of medical electrical equipment for risk assessment;
- and health care regulatory authorities, test houses and other organizations responsible for implementing standards for medical electrical equipment.
