Scientific basis of personalised tomographic radiation planning for radioembolisation: A form of brachytherapy planning Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Today's tomographic imaging techniques such as catheter-directed CT and single photon emission computed tomography with integrated computed tomography may be used for pre-therapy radiation planning for radioembolisation based on prospective calculation of tissue radiation absorbed doses. We outline the scientific concepts that underlie modern personalised tomographic radiation planning for radioembolisation and highlight its similarities to brachytherapy planning.
