Organ absorbed dose estimation reflecting specific organ masses with simple scaling of reference doses using the organ masses

Manabe, Kentaro  ; Koyama, Shuji*

It is important for radiation protection in diagnostic nuclear medicine to estimate organ absorbed doses in consideration of person-specific parameters. This study proposes a straightforward method for estimating organ doses which reflect an individual organ masses by scaling the reference doses based on the reference human models using the inverse ratio of the individual masses to the reference organ masses. The method was tested for the administration cases of $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc-labelled colloids and $$^{123}$$I-labelled sodium iodine to confirm the effectiveness of the method. The discrepancies of the doses estimated by the method were sufficiently small in terms of solid organs.
