Calculations related to nuclear medicine

Instruction for the programs below is accessible here.
(1.) Calculation of thyroid volumen on the basis of the lobes diameters
(2.) Calculation of (radio)nuclide uptake (f.e. uptake of radioiodine in the thyroid)
 (2a.) Calculation of uptake of I-131 in the thyroid (This program can be saved as a file and launched in another PC, a browser with HTML and JavaScript is necessary; in Polish).
(3.) Calculation of radioiodine dose (simplified)
(4.) Kinetic modeling I. (effective half-time, maximal uptake and others, based on a series of measures) - for radionuclide therapy
(5.) Kinetic modeling II. (effective half-time, maximal uptake and others, based on three measures) - for radionuclide therapy
(6.) Calculation of dose of radioiodine or another radionuclide for treatment (modified Marinelli-formula)
(7.) Dosimetry of α- and β-radiation
(8.) Dose rate and absorbed dose of γ radiation (in a distance from a point source)

Conversion of radioactivity units

Here, you can convert activity of a radioactive substance given in traditional units [Ci] into SI-derived ones [Bq] and vice versa. Becquerel [Bq] is an activity unit corresponding to one radioactive decay per second [1/s]. This is also the name of Antoine Henri Becquerel - the winner of the Nobel Prize together with Maria Skłodowska-Curie and her husband in 1903. The traditional unit Curie [Ci] corresponds to the activity of 1 gram of pure radium-226 (1 Ci = 3.7 * 1010 Bq or 3.7E+10 Bq).
