Table 2 Peak noise equivalent count rate (NECR), scatter fraction, peak true count rate and their corresponding activity concentration for the DMI-DR and DMI systems. Results obtained for DMI-DR at Southampton, Poole, and Plymouth (scanners A, B, C) [5] and for DMI at Stanford and Uppsala Universities [2], Tokyo [3] and Brugge [4] are listed for comparison
