Title: Technical Equivalency Evaluation of Lynx Electronics and Apex-InVivo software for the LLNL Whole Body Scanning Bed System

Abstract

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) Whole Body Counter (WBC) is replacing the following components for its scanning bed counting system: NIM electronics with modern Lynx electronics, The Alpha Workstation running VMS with a PC running Windows, and Abacos-Plus in-vivo counting software with the new Apex-InVivo software. These new components provide a compact design, extend the lifecycle of the system as a whole, reduce maintenance and user time, an improve overall ease of use. The technical evaluations and results described in this document demonstrate that the total system, incorporating these new components, provides results that comply with Internal Dosimetry requirements.
