Abstract: Today's tomographic imaging techniques such as catheter-directed CT and single photon emission computed tomography with integrated computed tomography may be used for pre-therapy radiation planning for radioembolisation based on prospective calculation of tissue radiation absorbed doses. We outline the scientific concepts that underlie modern personalised tomographic radiation planning for radioembolisation and highlight its similarities to brachytherapy planning.
