  • Arterial administration of 90Y microspheres is used for salvage therapy in patients with primary or metastasized tumors within the liver. The clinical use of high-yield beta emitters presents unique calibration, dosage measurement, and exposure monitoring tasks. This report illustrates the following issues: determination of container and volume-specific correction factors in a standard dose calibrator for various receipt and dispensing vial geometries using a U.S. National Institute of… CONTINUE READING
