STANDARDS & OTHER PUBLICATIONS: Medical
NEMA MS 10-2010
Determination of Local Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) in Diagnostic
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Defines methods for determining the
local SAR of diagnostic MRI radio
frequency coils under a specific set of
conditions.

NEMA MS 11-2010
Determination of Gradient‑Induced
Electric Fields in Diagnostic Magnetic
Resonance Imaging
Defines methods for determining the
gradient-induced electric fields of
diagnostic magnetic resonance imaging
gradient coils (head and body) under a
specific set of conditions.
$66

NEMA MS 12-2010
Quantification and Mapping of
Geometric Distortion for Special
Applications
Defines test methods for measuring the
absolute spatial variation of geometric
accuracy within magnetic resonance
images. This standard presents the
absolute geometric accuracy as a map,
graph or table throughout the imaging
region rather than as simple figures of
merit, such as average or worst-case
error.

NEMA NU 1-2012
Performance Measurements of
Gamma Cameras
Provides a uniform criterion for the
measurement and reporting of gamma
camera performance parameters for
single and multiple crystal cameras and
tomographic devices that image a
section or reconstruction image volume,
or both.
$123

NEMA NU 2-2012
Performance Measurements of
Positron Emission Tomographs (PETs)
Provides a uniform and consistent
method for measuring and reporting
performance parameters of PETs.
Included are time of flight and non-time
of flight coincidence systems, discrete
and continuous detector designs, single
and multiple slice devices and
multiplanar and volume reconstruction
models.

NEMA NU 3-2004
Performance Measurements and
Quality Control Guidelines for
Non‑Imaging Intraoperative Gamma
Probes
Establishes definitions and describes
quantitative measurements of
performance characteristics and quality
control tests for non-imaging
intraoperative gamma probes.

NEMA NU 4-2008
Performance Measurements of Small
Animal Positron Emission
Tomographs (PETs)
Proposes a standardized methodology
for evaluating the performance of PETs
designed for animal imaging. Establishes
a baseline of system performance in
typical imaging conditions independent
of camera design and applies to a wide
range of camera models and geometries.
Represents a subset of measurements
that characterize the performance of
PETs for specific imaging tasks typically
encountered in small laboratory animal
imaging facilities. This subset is deemed
to be common across all tomographs
existing at the time of publication.

NEMA RT 1-2014
Gating Interface
Provides a detailed description of the
gating interface between Radiation
Therapy Treatment Delivery Devices
(TDD), commonly called linear
accelerators or other particle therapy
accelerators and Patient Position
Monitoring Systems (PPMS).
