Radionuclide therapy (RNT) involves the selective delivery of radiation, emitted from radionuclides to tumors or target organs. The techniques of RNT are increasingly being used for the treatment of various tumors. The purpose of this article is to report on the current state of RNT, to clarify the issues of radiation protection associated with RNT, and to show future prospects.

The International Radiation Protection Association, IRPA, promotes the excellence in radiation protection by providing benchmarks of good practice, as well as enhancing professional competence and net...
The use of computer simulation is arguably more widespread in other industries than in medicine. However, it has filtered into mainstream use in radiation therapy via a commercial product born from co...
With the increasing use of advanced radiation techniques such as intensity modulated radiation therapy, stereotactic radiation therapy, and proton therapy, radiation oncologists now have the tools to ...
Radiologists are at higher risk of adverse health effects due to their occupational radiation exposure; therefore, applying protection techniques is imperative. Studies on radiologists' compliance in ...
Advances in multimodality imaging, providing accurate information of the irradiated target volume and the adjacent critical structures or organs at risk (OAR), has made significant improvements in del...
This study evaluates the radiation exposure of scattered radiation for the interventionalist during coronary angiography using different X-ray protection materials, namely, an X-ray Screen...
This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of stereotactic body radiation therapy while using intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) planning to help avoid radiatio...
