(b) Have a door at any entrance; and
(c) Permit communication with and visual observation of the patient from the treatment control panel during the irradiation from an electronic brachytherapy device.
(2) For electronic brachytherapy devices capable of operating at or below 50 kV, radiation shielding for the staff in the treatment room shall be available, either as a portable shield or as localized shielded material around the treatment site.
(3) For electronic brachytherapy devices capable of operating at greater than 150 kV:
(a) The control panel shall be located outside the treatment room; and
