The Triple-to-Double Coincidence Ratio (TDCR) method in Liquid Scintillation counting (LSC) is a primary radionuclide standardization method widely used in National Metrology laboratories and was primarily developed for the activity measurement of beta emitters. It is based on liquid scintillation: the light is detected by three photomultipliers (PM) and(More)
BACKGROUND In nuclear medicine, liquid radiopharmaceuticals for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes are administered to patients by using various types of syringes with different volumes. The activity of each "dose" must be carefully measured and documented prior to administration using an activity calibrator. METHODS Calibrator response is a function of(More)
The hypothesis that proximity to the Sun causes variation of decay constants at permille level has been tested and disproved. Repeated activity measurements of mono-radionuclide sources were performed over periods from 200 days up to four decades at 14 laboratories across the globe. Residuals from the exponential nuclear decay curves were inspected for(More)
The investigation of actinides' internal contamination in human body makes use of a variety of techniques. In large scale screening the technique of "in vivo" evaluation of bone 241Am burden via the determination of the nuclide activity in the skull is often used. For this purpose, adequate calibration procedures and standard phantoms are needed. The(More)
