RSICC CODE PACKAGE PSR-617

1.†††††††† NAME AND TITLE

F-Score: F-Score Nuclide ID Scoring Applications (Version 1.0).

2.†††††††† CONTRIBUTORS

Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, NM.

3.†††††††† CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER

C++, Microsoft Office, Windows. (P00617PCX8600).

4.†††††††† NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED

The goal of the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) Algorithm Improvement Program (AIP) is to facilitate gamma-radiation detector nuclide identification algorithm development, improvement, and validation. Accordingly, scoring criteria have been developed to objectively assess the performance of nuclide identification algorithms. In addition, a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet application for automated nuclide identification scoring has been developed.

5.†††††††† METHOD OF SOLUTION

The fundamental equation used to evaluate nuclide identification algorithm performance is based on F-scores. F-scores are a statistical method for determining accuracy by utilizing precision (p) and recall (r).

6.†††††††† RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS

None listed.

7.†††††††† TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

On the order of seconds

8.†††††††† COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS

Windows based x86 systems.

9.†††††††† COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS

DirectX must be installed on the computer or the user must use the DLL supplied with the executable.
