  2. 2. Quantification of I-131 Activity from Gamma Camera Images of Thyroid Cancer Patients

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Sjukhusfysikerutbildningen

    Author : Frida Westerbergh; [2019]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : BACKGROUND: Radioiodine (131I) has been used in thyroid cancer treatments for many years, and has demonstrated good results with regards to disease management. Radioiodine therapy is however partially empirical, as not very much is known concerning radiation dosimetry. READ MORE

  3. 3. Simulations and Measurements of radiation doses from patients treated with I-131.

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Radiofysik

    Author : Daniel Gälman; [2018]
    Keywords : I-131; Iodine-131; Monte-Carlo Simulations; dose rate measurements; taxi driver; newborn; thyrotoxicosis; restriction times; thyroid cancer;

    Abstract : The aim of this work is to introduce a couple of new exposure scenariosof interest when personnel, family members and general public are externally irradiated from patients treated with Iodine-131. A series of modied ORNL matematical phantoms were used in Monte-Carlo simulations in PENELOPE-2011 to determine dose rates to: a cab driver where thepatient sits in the back seat at opposite side, a newborn child held by an adult patient, a doctor giving treatment to a patient while leaning over the hospital bed and collective effective dose to bus passengers if the patient travels home by bus.
