4th scientific workshop for stakeholders: NPL, Teddington, United Kingdom, 20-21 May 2019

The final scientific workshop for stakeholders, entitled “European Workshop on the Clinical Implementation of Dosimetry for Molecular Radiotherapy”, took place at the National Physics Laboratory (NPL) in Teddington, United Kingdom, on 20-21 May 2019.

The workshop presented the final results of this project. New protocols for comparison of quantitative imaging and commissioning of a Molecular Radiotherapy (MRT) dose calculation platform were presented in the context of multi-centre comparison exercises performed within the project. The outputs from the project put into context with presentations covering activity measurement, quantitative imaging and dosimetry in a clinical environment, in support of clinical trials and from a commercial prospective. The latest guidance on dosimetry and quantitative imaging for MRT from the EANM, MIRD and ICRP were presented for discussion.
