IMBALite includes the core functionality provided by the "Base Unit" of previous versions of IMBA Professional Plus, but it is now applicable to an extended and very comprehensive list of radionuclides (formerly only available through the purchase of two additional radionuclide packs).
The Base Unit is the core of all three versions of IMBA® and enables the user to perform basic internal dosimetry calculations. It implements biokinetic and dosimetric models which are recommended by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) for the Reference Worker (ICRP 68 and US 10 CFR 835) and applies the methodology described in ICRP Publication 60. Output is both tabular and graphical and special tools enable data transfer between Windows applications.
For standard calculations, all of the default values can be selected from built-in databases at the touch of a button. For more detailed calculations, the user can enter individual parameter values. Calculations are performed 6-10 times faster than in the previous software (IMBA® Expert/Professional Series). The product has been extensively quality assured and comes with complete documentation.
The IMBALite Lite version is intended for the user who does not require all of the advanced features provided by the previous modular Add-Ons. More advanced functionality, to meet the needs of internal dose specialists and researchers is now provided through IMBAPlus and IMBAPro
