Description

We provide the technical information and practical experience to ensure that you are well prepared to calculate dose estimates for radiopharmaceuticals. Instructors have decades of experience in performing such calculations, for government and industry, and in training first time or experienced users.

Practice problems and use of FDA approved software will be emphasized.

During the week, students will complete instruction in the following required subjects: radiation dosimetry fundamentals, dose calculation methods, study design to obtain dosimetry data, extrapolation of animal data gathered for radiopharmaceuticals to humans, use of medical imaging equipment to obtain data from human subjects for generalized or patient-individualized dosimetry, kinetic data analysis and related uncertainties, components of current internal dose models and phantoms, and understanding of all dose-related quantities.


Audience

Those seeking expertise in calculating radiation doses for radiopharmaceuticals.
