The Coordinated Research Project (CRP) E35010 titled “Applications of biological dosimetry methods in radiation oncology, nuclear medicine, diagnostic and interventional radiology” (MEDBIODOSE) is being launched in Section of Applied Radiation Biology and Radiotherapy, Division of Human Health at the Department of Nuclear Sciences and Applications of IAEA. The CRP will start in 2017 and end in early 2021.
Improving the quality of health with biological dosimetry
Biological dosimetry is one of the most developed branches of radiobiology; its technical aspects, particularly those relevant to cytogenetic assays, are well refined and have reached the level of the international standardisation. The aim of this CRP is to address various uses of biological dosimetry methods in radiation oncology, nuclear medicine, diagnostic and interventional radiology. It will include filing in gaps in knowledge and developing new approaches to assist with the transition to personalised medicine. The project will bring together a number of institutions to progress toward the common goal of improving the quality of health care using radiation technologies.
