Abstract
Evaluating different radiation detection technologies, with the intent of either directing research and development or equipment acquisition, involves the consideration of many criteria, the suitability of the detection sensitivity being normally of prior importance. This report presents two general statistical methods allowing the evaluation of the detection sensitivity for different technologies. These methods rely on a limited set of assumptions, thus allowing more accurate sensitivity estimates in scenarios where the signal and background levels are low. One of the models also supports sensitivity estimation for imaging detectors, under the same limited assumptions.
