The acquisition and processing of image data from gamma cameras is the major, and often the only, use of computers in nuclear medicine. A system which has been developed on a PDP 11/40 for the purpose of computerized analysis of radioassay (RIA) data using a polynomial regression on th standards data is presented. This automation reduces the time necessary for development of a standard curve and analysis of patient data from about one hour to about five minutes. The computer is used to store data of all the RIA runs and compares each day's assay with the results of previous assays stored as a quality control procedure. Personnel radiation exposure data is maintained in the disk files and monthly detailed reports are printed for each hospital service using radiation monitors.
