“Dosimetry and Health Effects of Diagnostic Applications of Radiopharmaceuticals with Particular Emphasis on the Use in Children and Adolescents” was a two-year project funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme, which was successfully finalised in January 2012. The consortium consisted of five partners from Germany, France, Belgium and Austria, with EIBIR as the coordinating partner. The scientific partners are considered to be leading experts in Europe on the dosimetry of nuclear medicine.

The main goals of the project were to evaluate the potential health impacts of nuclear medicine diagnostics, and to provide recommendations for future research and on the use and standardisation of hybrid imaging.

PEDDOSE.NET carried out a systematic scientific evaluation of the available dosimetry data for diagnostic nuclear medicine with particular emphasis on paediatric nuclear medicine. Recommendations were developed for directing future research on the use and standardisation of hybrid imaging, on the implementation of patient-specific dosage applied to nuclear medicine diagnostics and on education and training.
