Influence of high-energy photons from cobalt-57 flood sources on scintillation camera uniformity images

Abstract

Cobalt-57 flood sources are often used for system flood-field uniformity checks of scintillation camera performance. Such sources are now available in large sizes and with high activities. Uniformity images using new57Co sources have shown artefacts which are not present in uniformity images obtained from technetium-99m flood sources of the same activity… (More)
