Using a scout dose of particles identical to the treatment microspheres, such as with 166 Ho-microspheres, may provide a more accurate prediction of the intrahepatic therapeutic microsphere distribution. Further investigation is required to confirm this hypothesis, because differences in catheter positioning between the scout procedure and the therapy procedure may also play an important role. , 2015a). 6 PRETREATMENT ACTIVITY CALCULATIONS Different methods for pretreatment activity calculations (pretreatment dosimetry) have been proposed.
