Title

Effect of respiratory motion on internal radiation dosimetry

Authors
Published in Medical Physics. 2014, vol. 41, no. 11, p. 112506
Abstract Estimation of the radiation dose to internal organs is essential for the assessment of radiation risks and benefits to patients undergoing diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine procedures including PET. Respiratory motion induces notable internal organ displacement, which influences the absorbed dose for external exposure to radiation. However, to their knowledge, the effect of respiratory motion on internal radiation dosimetry has never been reported before.
