The first traces the period of rapid accumulation of the daughter nuclide following creation of the generator or following elution (removal) of a portion of the daughter nuclide. This part of the curve lasts for approximately four half-lives of the daughter nuclide (which Figure 3-1 Technetium-99m generator. 004 h (13 s) 1175 (molybdenum-99–technetium-99m) 82 Sr–82 Rb (strontium-82–rubidium-82) 81 Rb–81m Kr (rubidium-81–krypton-81m) for 99m Tc is approximately 24 hours). The second segment of the curve traces what is called the period of equilibrium, during which time the amount of daughter nuclide decreases as the parent nuclide decays.

Figure 5-4 Sodium iodide crystal scintillation detector. crystal (Fig. 5-4). The transparent gel has the same refractive index as the crystal and the photomultiplier tube (PMT) window. The light striking the photocathode causes it to emit electrons, referred to as photoelectrons. On average, four to six light photons strike the photocathode for each photoelectron produced. The number of electrons produced at the photocathode is greatly increased by the multiplying action within the tube (Fig. 5-5).

The closer the detector is to the source, the greater the number of photons that will cross the detector window. Sensitivity for charged particles (alpha or beta) can be increased by using thin, penetrable materials for the detector window such as a thin sheet of mica or, for greatest sensitivity, by actually placing the radioactive sample inside the sensitive volume. Sensitivity for moderately high-energy photons is improved by increasing the size of the sensitive volume or, equivalently, by “cramming” in more gas molecules under pressure or by using a thicker window.
