Summary of "Comparing voxel-based absorbed dosimetry methods in tumors, liver, lung, and at the liver-lung interface for (90)Y microsphere selective internal radiation therapy."

To assess differences between four different voxel-based dosimetry methods (VBDM) for tumor, liver, and lung absorbed doses following (90)Y microsphere selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) based on (90)Y bremsstrahlung SPECT/CT, a secondary objective was to estimate the sensitivity of liver and lung absorbed doses due to differences in organ segmentation near the liver-lung interface.

Internal dosimetry is of critical importance to obtain an accurate absorbed dose-response relationship during preclinical molecular imaging and targeted radionuclide therapy (TRT). Conventionally, abs...

Dosimetry of Lu-177 PSMA-617 in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer: correlations between pre-therapeutic imaging and "whole body" tumor dosimetry with treatment outcomes.

Lu-PSMA-617 enables targeted delivery of beta-particle radiation to prostate cancer. We determined its radiation dosimetry and relationships to pre-therapeutic imaging and outcomes. 30 patients with ...

Monte Carlo and Co based kilovoltage x-ray dosimetry methods.

This work seeks to investigate new methods to determine the absorbed dose to water from kilovoltage x-rays. Current methods are based on measurements in-air and rely on correction factors in order to ...

Levels of choline-containing compounds in normal liver and liver metastases of colorectal cancer as recorded by H MRS.

A relatively high signal for choline-containing compounds (total choline, tCho) is commonly found in H MR spectra of malignant tumors, but it is unclear if this also occurs in tumors in the liver. We...

Dose volume histogram-based optimization of image reconstruction parameters for quantitative Y-PET imaging.

Y-microsphere radioembolization or selective internal radiation therapy is increasingly being used as a treatment option for tumors that are not candidates for surgery and external beam radiation ther...
