Voxel phantoms for internal dosimetry.

In: Radiation Physics for Nuclear Medicine. Berlin: Springer, 2011. 257-279
The calculation of radiation dose from internally incorporated radionuclides is based on so-called absorbed fractions (AFs) and specific absorbed fractions (SAFs). AFs specify the fraction of energy emitted by radioactivity in a given (source) organ that is absorbed in the source organ itself and in other (target) organs. SAFs are AFs divided by target organ mass.
