Effect of depth as a factor affecting organ uptake in Gamma camera - a phantom study

2011-01-05 Owais Afzal.

This study involves evaluating the effect of depth as a factor affecting percentage renal uptake in Gates protocol. This study helped to conclude for absolute quantitation the linear attenuation coefficient need not be 0.153/cm (narrow beam) always.
