bio-assay, blood volume and RBC survival tests.
System calibration is simple and automatic with Cs137 and Eu152
reference sources and the multi-channel analyser is extremely
user-friendly. Region of interests can either be selected from a
convenient menu of isotopes with predefined regions or be
user-defined. The protocols allow use of a standard capsule method
or for the system to perform an automatic decay correction to the
Both full spectrum counts and counts by region of interest are
displayed and all results can be stored on the instrument along with
patient demographics, physician data and administered dose data.
There is no limit to the number of uptakes that can be performed,
and the results will be reported with detailed count information and
automatic percentage uptake calculations.
