During recent years, concerns have been raised within the nuclear medicine field about the accuracy of calibrations for 1231 using radionuclide calibrators. Significant variations in response between different containers have been observed due to the low energy of the associated photon emissions.
To investigate the level of measurement performance for this particular radionuclide, an intercomparison exercise was conducted between the National Physical Laboratory, Amersham International plc and the UK hospital physics community.
The conduct of that intercomparison is described here, additional experimental results are
presented, the results are discussed and recommendations made.
