How to Personalize Dosimetry

In this presentation, Dr. Lorenzo Mercolli, Medical Physicist at the Department of Nuclear Medicine, Inselspital, Bern University Hospital, reviewed and compared the standard dosimetry methodologies. Additionally, he discussed the challenges of personalized dosimetry in the case of Y-90 radioembolization and gave an example of personalized dosimetry for diagnostic imaging with Rubidium-82 chloride.

The talk was followed by a Q&A where attendees asked questions to Dr. Mercolli.
