Title:
Improvement of dosimetry for I-131 therapy of lung metastases with special regard to children with thyroid cancer from Belarus following the Chernobyl accident

Project management at the University of Würzburg:

Participating scientists:

Abstract:
To improve the measuring techniques for the determination of iodine kinetics and mass of thyroid carcinoma metastases particularly for lung tissue. To improve dosimetric methods and models. To determine cross sections for the interaction of electrons and photons with lung tissue for the purpose of Monte-Carlo-Simulations. To coordinate European efforts to treat patients with pulmonary metastases of thyroid cancer; to propose, test and apply an optimal protocol for the treatment of those patients. To follow-up the treated patients in order to observe late effects of radioiodine therapy.
