From imaging to dosimetry and biological effects
Quarterly Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging , Volume 55 - Issue 1 p. 44- 56
The essential steps are explained in calculating a radiation dose for radionuclide therapy from imaging data. As the dose alone is a meaningless value, its consequences in tumour cell kill efficiency and normal tissue damage are explained. The influence of dose rate and inhomogeneous dose distributions are discussed.
