Abstract

Theranostics using radionuclides has been available clinically for a number of decades and recently become a hot topic in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumours and prostate cancer.  Dosimetry is a powerful tool that can be used to prescribe patient specific radionuclide therapy, in an effort to administer the greatest therapeutic benefit while minimising complications.
