UNLABELLED Dosimetry is important in the evaluation of new radiopharmaceuticals and in radionuclide therapy treatment planning. The base is an accurate in vivo measurement of the spatial and temporal distribution of the administered radioactivity. This can be made by planar whole-body activity quantification using the conjugate-view method where a geometrical-mean image is corrected for attenuation by a measured transmission image. We present a new method to measure whole-body transmission… CONTINUE READING
