Third-party-funded project

Exhalation of I-131 after Radioiodine Therapy and I-131 Inhalation of Relatives

Project management at the University of Würzburg:

Participating scientists:

1.Isotopenlaboratorium für biologische und medizinische Forschung der Universität Göttingen

Dose rate measurements, Measurements of the exhalation and iodine excretion for more than 10 days after patient application, measurement of the air contamination.

2.Klinik und Poliklinik für Nuklearmedizin der Universität Köln
Measurements of the exhalation and iodine excretion. Differentiation according to the thyroid diesease. Calculation of the exposure with the aid of measurements and model calculations.
Animal experiments of the influence of non-radioactive iodine on the exhalation rate. Determination of the chemical compunds of radioiodine in plasma.

3.Klinik und Poliklinik für Nuklearmedizin der Universität Würzburg
Air contamination measurements in a therapy ward and in the patients' relatives home, incorporation monitoring of relatives. Modelling of iodine kinetics.
