Objective: To study the radiological safety feature of indigenously developed radiotherapy simulator. Materials and Methods: A comprehensive study for radiological safety features of the unit were carried out as per the standard protocol/guidelines. NERO mAx X-ray test device was used for KVp, mA, mAs, and X-rays output related test of the units along with other required test device. Results: All the measurement results indicate that all the tested parameters of this simulator are well within the prescribed tolerance limit. Conclusion: The simulator is safe for routine clinical use.
