This course will cover the essentials for the practical implementation of dosimetry in nuclear medicine therapy. Attendees will have the opportunity to work with raw scintigraphy data and will gain hands on experience in processing that data to calculate an absorbed dose. Practical examples will mainly follow PRRT therapy however the techniques and methodologies covered can be applied to a range of therapeutic applications. Topics include quantitative imaging and corrections for therapy imaging. TAC fitting and radiation transport for S value calculations. Methodologies for absorbed dose and radiobiology computation are also covered.
- understanding of the fundamentals in absorbed dose calculations
- practical experience in handling a range of dosimetry image data and performing dose calculations
- gain confidence to implement dosimetry in their own centre
