Summary of "Radiation protection in therapy with radiopharmaceuticals."

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.
