Abstract

The essential steps are explained in calculating a radiation dose for radionuclide therapy from imaging data. As the dose alone is a meaningless value, its consequences in tumour cell kill efficiency and normal tissue damage are explained. The influence of dose rate and inhomogeneous dose distributions are discussed.
