IMBA® Lite, Plus and Pro consists of a Base Unit, and a range of options which increase functionality.
IMBA® Lite, Plus and Pro
Base Unit: enables the user to (a) assess an intake from bioassay measurement data; (b) calculate bioassay quantities at different times from a specified intake; (c) calculate equivalent organ doses and effective dose from a single intake.
Additional Radionuclides (Pack 2) implements a further 603 additional radionuclides.
IMBA® Plus and Pro only
Multiple Intake Regimes enables the user to deal with up to 10 separate intake regimes simultaneously.
Multiple Bioassay Types enables the user to fit the intake to different bioassay types simultaneously
Associated Radionuclides enables the user to specify up to 30 additional associated radionuclides, defining the amount of each with respect to the indicator radionuclide.
Uranium Mixtures enables the user to specify a mixture of uranium isotopes (U-234, U-235, U-236 and U-238) for dose and bioassay calculations.
Uptake from wounds enables the user to deal with intakes from a wound site.
IMBA® Pro only
Errors on intake - in cases where an intake is being estimated from bioassay data, and all of the data are assumed to be normally distributed with a specified standard deviation, then this Add-On will propagate the errors to calculate their contribution to the error in the estimate of intake.
Bayes Implementation enables the user to use a Bayesian approach to estimate an intake.
Tritium Tool enables the user to select up to 10 previous tritium measurements, and to fit simultaneously the best 10 intakes.
Compensation Type Calculations enables the user to select an organ, and a date on which cancer was diagnosed in the organ.
Ingrowth of Americium enables the user to take ingrowth into account automatically when performing calculations.
Statistics Package enables the user to bring up useful statistical information immediately after fitting intakes to measurement data.
CANDU models implements chemical forms of hydrogen and carbon that occur in CANDU type reactors using models that are currently recommended by COG (CANDU Owners Group) in Canada.
