Abstract

As part of the ongoing programme, supported by the National Measurement System Policy Unit of the Department of Trade and Industry, the National Physical Laboratory is conducting a new series of intercomparisons and workshops.
Recent concerns have been raised within the nuclear medicine field about the apparent discrepancies between the AEA Technology plc nominal activity for 131I capsules and the corresponding activity measurements made in hospitals.
To assess the accuracy of clinical measurements of the activity of 131I solutions and capsules and to determine the reason for the above disagreement, an mtercomparison exercise was conducted between the National Physical Laboratory (NFL), AEATechnology plc (AEA), Nycomed-Amersham (NA) and the UK hospital physics community.
