Organ Specific Dosimetry

Moderator: M. Lassmann (Würzburg)
Co-Moderator: S.-E. Strand (Lund)


Speakers:

abstract
C. Chiesa (Milano):
New developments in patient-specific dosimetry
M. Konijnenberg (Petten):
Kidney dosimetry
C. Hindorf (London):
Whole body /bone marrow dosimetry


Educational objectives:

  1. New rules, regulations and guidelines
  2. The use of PET, PET/SPECT/CT for dosimetry
  3. New computer codes for dosimetry
  4. The inclusion of radiobiological parameters in therapy planning
  5. Methods and pitfalls for kidney dosimetry
  6. Methods and pitfalls for whole body /bone marrow dosimetry


Summary:

This continuing education session is directed primarily towards nuclear physicians active or interested in targeted radionuclide therapy, but also towards medical physicists and nuclear medicine technologists. It will cover new developments in patient-specific dosimetry particularly with respect to organ systems at risk such as kidney or bone marrow.
By getting an overview of the current state-of-the art and recent developments, this session seeks to provide a foundation to participants for refining their services. Accordance with guidelines, latest imaging quantification methodology and newer aspects combining physical dosimetry with biological efficacy will help to improve radionuclide therapy at the participant’s hospital.


Key Words:

Targeted radionuclide therapy, guidelines, quantitative imaging, biologically equivalent dose, kidney dosimetry, whole body / bone marrow dosimetry
