ESMPE: Nuclear Medicine Dosimetry

Start Date: Jun 16th, 2021 07:00

End Date: Jun 16th, 2021 23:18


Location: Online

This one day satellite meeting will be held in conjunction with the 3 rd European Congress of Medical Physics. This mini-course will focus on practical issues related to the implementation of clinical nuclear medicine dosimetry, mostly in a therapeutic context.

The morning session will present a basic reminder of NM dosimetry principles and use, discuss available software solutions for clinical dosimetry and present uncertainty analysis applied to Nuclear Medicine dosimetry practice according to recent EANM guidelines.

The afternoon session will be dedicated to reproducibility, robustness and metrology applied to nuclear medicine dosimetry. Finally, OpenDose3D, an opensource 3D Slicer module for patientspecific dosimetry will be demonstrated.

The event will be accredited by EBAMP (European Board for Accreditation in Medical Physics) and is intended for practicing clinical Medical Physicists who are involved in the field of NM dosimetry.
