Freeware for reporting radiation dosimetry following the administration of radiopharmaceuticals

An article has been published in the journal Applied Radiation and Isotopes about a freeware application for automatic calculation of the radiation dosimetry of radiopharmaceuticals administered to patients, according to the patient’s age, the type of radiopharmaceutical and the administered activity (in mCi or MBq). The resulting dosimetry is shown in a report that specifies the absorbed doses for each organ (in mGy) and the effective dose (in mSv).

This application is available free of charge in both English and Spanish at www.radiopharmacy.net

Pediatric activities of radiopharmaceuticals

imagesThe dosage card of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) and the North American consensus guidelines each provide recommendations of administered activities of radiopharmaceuticals in children, but there are substantial differences between these two guidelines. For commonly performed pediatric nuclear medicine studies, following either the EANMdosage card (version 1/5/2008) or the 2010 North American consensus guidelines for administered activities of radiopharmaceuticals can result in substantial differences in radiation exposure for the same procedure. This discordance has identified opportunities for harmonization of the guidelines, which may lead to further reduction in nuclear medicine radiation doses in children.
