Radiation spectra for radionuclides currently provided by the MIRD Committee and ICRP do not include the very low-energy N- and O-shell Auger electrons. These electrons, emitted in large numbers by radionuclides decaying by electron capture and/or internal conversion, are important for determining the absorbed dose in microscopic volumes. Accordingly, the present AAPM Report employs Monte Carlo computational methods to obtain a self-consistent set of complete radiation spectra for a variety of… CONTINUE READING
