Dosimetry basically refers to the science in which the radiation dose is determined by either measurement, calculation, or a combination of both measurement and calculation. The scientific name for radiation dose is “absorbed dose”; this is basically the amount of radiation energy that is deposited in any of the tissue divided by the whole mass of the tissue. The radiation dose is the most essential physical factor which usually influences the response of tumors as well as the rest of the body to radiation. We provide you with the best dosimetry services.

Why is radiation dosimetry so important?
The absorbed dose usually determines the extent to which tumors, as well as normal tissues, are affected by radiation exposure. The higher the absorbed dose to tumors, the more cells are likely to be killed by radiation, and also the greater will be the likelihood of a cure. Whereas, the higher the absorbed dose to normal tissues of the body, the more likely as well as severe may be the undesirable and toxic side-effects of the radiation exposure. An essential advantage of radiopharmaceutical therapy is basically its ability to irradiate and also it effectively treatstumors present throughout the body; at the same time, some of the irradiation of normal organs is usually unavoidable also. Hence, the basic role of radiation dosimetry in targeted radionuclide therapy is to determine individually, for each patient, the administered quantity of the radiopharmaceutical which will most effectively treat that patient’s disease while also avoids absorbed doses that can damage normal tissues. Individualized radiation dosimetry is very much critical for planning the most effective as well as safest targeted radionuclide therapy for every patient.
