In survival analysis, the right probability function is commonly called the survival function, because it gives the fraction of the population remaining after the given time.
If you want a right-tailed probability, it is better to call this method directly instead of computing 1.0 - LeftProbability(x), because the latter will loose accuracy as P(x) gets close to 1. (In fact, in the far right tail where Q(x) < 1.0E-16, it will give 0.0, whereas this method is likely to give an accurate tiny value.)
