AbstractThe kidneys are the dose-limiting organ in lutetium-177 DOTATATE therapy. Therefore, it is advisable to perform critical organ dosimetry focussed on renal dose in treated patients. A key uncertainty in such dose estimates is the use of standard phantoms to represent the individual patient. The primary aim of this study was to investigate the accuracy of methods for estimating kidney size, and hence absorbed kidney dose, by comparison with individual measurements from computed tomography (CT) imaging.
