Cabinet X-Ray System

An X-ray system with the X-ray tube installed in an enclosure (hereinafter termed "cabinet") which, independently of existing architectural structures except the floor on which it may be placed, is intended to contain at least that portion of a material being irradiated, provide radiation attenuation, and exclude individuals from its interior during generation of X-radiation. Included are all the X-ray systems designed primarily for inspection of carry-on baggage at airline, railroad, and bus terminals, and in similar facilities. An X-ray tube used within a shielded part of a building or X-ray equipment which may temporarily or occasionally incorporate portable shielding is not considered a cabinet X-ray system.
