Practical determination of organ S values for individual patients for therapy.

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Radiation dose calculations using S values of a reference man can introduce substantial errors for individuals patients. We found that all non target sources can be included in the remainder of the body estimate for therapeutic radionuclides. A practical method to derive organ S values based on MIRD data and the mass of the organ and total body of individual patients is proposed.
