UNLABELLED Accurate absorbed dose estimates in radionuclide therapy require patient-specific dosimetry. In patient-based dosimetry, estimation of absolute organ uptake is essential. The methods used should be reasonably accurate as well as easy to perform in routine clinical practice. One of the major sources of uncertainty in quantification of organ or tumor activity from planar images is the activity present in the tissue surrounding the source. METHODS To estimate organ activity as a… CONTINUE READING
