Example text

In any setting where a quantitative measurement is required, such as determining the amount of radioactivity in a radiopharmaceutical to be given to the patient or in a blood sample used in calculating a physiologic parameter or performing quality control of nuclear instrumentation, estimates of statistical certainty are necessary. Radioactive decay follows Poisson statistics or the Poisson probability law. The Poisson probability density function is similar but not identical to the Gaussian or normal probability density function.

The Poisson probability density function is similar but not identical to the Gaussian or normal probability density function. Curves expressing the Poisson and Gaussian probability density functions are more closely matched as the number of observed events is increased and practically identical if the mean is greater than 20. For data obeying the Poisson probability distribution, the standard deviation (SD) is given by SD = r , where r is the true mean. Because the true mean is usually estimated from an average of a number of individual measurements, the estimated standard deviation is SD(est) = r (es).

28 NUCLEAR MEDICINE: THE REQUISITES resolution is also lost through difficulty in collimating high-energy photons. Characteristic Radiation and Auger Electrons When an orbital electron is removed from its shell, it leaves a vacancy that is rapidly filled by a free electron or an electron from a shell farther from the nucleus. In this process,the “cascading”electron gives up energy as it fills in the vacancy and becomes more tightly bound. Most often, the energy that is given up by the electron is emitted in the form of electromagnetic radiation.
