The activity of radioactive pharmaceuticals administered to patients in nuclear medicine is usually determined using well-type high-pressure ionization chambers. For the Bqmeter chamber (Consortium BQM, Czech Republic) a Monte Carlo model was created using the MCNP4C2 code. Basic chamber characteristics for two sample containers of various geometry (a vial and an ampoule) were calculated and compared with measurements. As the pharmaceuticals are often measured in various syringes, the chamber response for samples in syringes was also studied.
