Workshop: Metrology for Radionuclide Therapy

Safe and effective cancer therapy using ionizing radiation is only possible due to accurate measurement of the radiation dose delivered to the tumour and surrounding tissues. These measurements are particularly complex for radionuclide therapy and involve measuring the activity of the radionuclide administered to the patient, determining the distribution of the radiopharmaceutical in the body and estimating the radiation dose delivered. This field, which combines biology, dosimetry and radionuclide metrology, is at an early stage.

To mark World Metrology Day, the Consultative Committee for Ionizing Radiation (CCRI) and the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM) are organizing a workshop on metrology for radionuclide therapy. The aim is to identify the current needs and gaps in metrology. Speakers are from the NIST, the University of Würzburg, the Medical University of Marburg, the NPL and the IAEA.

The workshop will be on 20 May 2021, 11:00-13:00 UTC. Please register in advance using this link:
