Target:nontarget ratio

Target:non-target ratio is critical in therapeutic procedures. A low target:non-target ratio may result in inadequate treatment of the primary disease and delivery of a potentially lethal radiation dose to bone marrow or other radiosensitive tissues. It is especially important therefore to assure the radiochemical purity of these drugs.
