During 1995, as part of a routine QA programme for radionucIide calibrators in the North West region of the UK, it was observed that a group of radionucIide calibrators gave consistently low readings for 67Ga when compared against the value predicted by a secondary standard calibrator. This shortfall ranged between 5.5 % and 6.7 %.
It was decided that a resolution of this problem could best be achieved by an intercomparison and an exercise was mounted between the National Physical Laboratory, Amersham International pIc and the hospital physics community.
The conduct of that intercomparison is described here, the results are discussed and recommendations made.
