Radiation Dose Estimates for [18F]5-Fluorouracil Derived from PET-Based and Tissue-Based Methods in Rats

Abstract

Radiation dosimetry assessment often begins with measuring pharmaceutical biodistribution in rodents. The traditional approach to dosimetry in rodents involves a radioassay ex vivo of harvested organs at different time points following administration of the radiopharmaceutical. The emergence of small-animal positron emission tomography (PET) presents the… (More)
