Title:
Determination of individual S-values for 131I using segmented CT data and the EGS4 Monte Carlo code. 
Abstract:
In individual voxel phantoms, which were segmented from whole-body computed tomography (CT) scans, S-values were calculated for (131)I using the EGS4 Monte Carlo code and compared to Medical Internal Radiation Dose (MIRD) S-values, which were derived from transport calculations in idealized mathematical phantoms. The individually calculated S-values agree very well with the MIRD values for organs, which are source and target simultaneously, when individual organ-mass corrections are applied to t...    »
