Interactive Course on Practical Implementation of Clinical Dosimetry in Nuclear Medicine Therapy

ESMIT

COURSE CONTENT

This course will cover the essentials for the practical implementation of dosimetry in nuclear medicine therapy. Attendees will have the opportunity to work with raw scintigraphy data and will gain hands on experience in processing that data to calculate an absorbed dose.  Practical examples will mainly follow PRRT therapy however the techniques and methodologies covered can be applied to a range of therapeutic applications. Topics include quantitative imaging and corrections for therapy imaging. TAC fitting and radiation transport for S value calculations.  Methodologies for absorbed dose and radiobiology computation are also covered.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • understanding of the fundamentals in absorbed dose calculations
  • practical experience in handling a range of dosimetry image data and performing dose calculations
  • gain confidence to implement dosimetry in their own centre

TARGET AUDIENCE

This course is mainly targeted to physicists, with an interest in implementing dosimetry in their center but lacking the practical experience to take this forward.

PREPARATORY MATERIAL

Basic Radiopharmaceutical Dosimetry Edition 3/12 of the Webinar Series on Basic Nuclear Medicine Optimisation of SPECT and SPECT/CT – Acquisition and Reconstruction Tech Guide – Chapter 6: Optimisation of SPECT and SPECT/CT – acquisition and reconstruction
