    Abstract: Quantitative analyses in Nuclear Medicine are essential, hence growing interest in algorithms that make nuclear medical data more reliable and accurate. The Partial Volume Effect (PVE) is the most important factor of loss of quantification in Nuclear Medicine, particularly for evaluation in regions of interest (ROIs) smaller than the Full Width at ...

    Abstract: Background: Qualitatively risk to human health is the product of the probability that contaminated water or food will be ingested and the radiological consequence or damage due to the intake. The human being activities can increase the deposition and transportation of naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) in the groundwater and surface w... Show More
