The Dosimetry Service basically organizes the legally needed personal dosimetry monitoring of individual person who is occupationally exposed to ionizing radiation. Each and every industry and facility has some different requirements for their radiation monitoring programs. Therefore, you can visit our centro de dosimetría to learn which of the dosimetry solutions are perfect for your application. Also, our radiation safety experts are available who will answer all of your questions as well as a custom tailor a monitoring program for your facility.
How is radiation dosimetry performed?
Medical physicists who are having special expertise in all the methods for determining absorbed dose usually collaborate with the treating physician and also the nuclear medicine technologist. In case if any patient undergoes any of the dosimetry studies prior to radiopharmaceutical therapy, then the patient may receive a small “dosimetry” quantity of the therapeutic radiopharmaceutical just prior to his/her actual treatment. Then the nuclear medicine technologist will collect three or more of the nuclear medicine images at different intervals of time after the dosimetry administration. In some of the cases, only one image is usually collected. The treatment team may also collect the patient’s blood, urine, or stool samples. Then the medical physicist utilizes the dosimetry measurements in order to calculate an appropriate amount of treatment for the therapy which is basically based on the patient’s unique bio distribution as well as clearance patterns from the body. In this kind of way, dosimetry basically ensures that the patient receives a personalized, safe, as well as and effective treatment.
