UNLABELLED Monte Carlo simulation can be particularly suitable for modeling the microscopic distribution of energy received by normal tissues or cancer cells and for evaluating the relative merits of different radiopharmaceuticals. We used a new code, CELLDOSE, to assess electron dose for isolated spheres with radii varying from 2,500 mum down to 0.05 mum, in which (131)I is homogeneously distributed. METHODS All electron emissions of (131)I were considered, including the whole beta(- 131)I… CONTINUE READING
