The ICRP argues that the absorbed dose (calculated at a point in tissue) is an unsatisfactory predictor of risk because it does not account for the average tissue dose or differences in tissue radiosensitivity.
Specifically, the pharmacokinetic model can be used to predict the target tissue dose associated with an animal toxicity study conducted by one route, and then can be exercised to predict the equivalent human exposure by another route that would result in the same target tissue dose (22).
The study "Comparison of Tumor and Normal Tissue Dose for Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation Using an Electronic Brachytherapy eBx Source and Iridium-192 Source," compared treatment plans for patients treated with Electronic Brachytherapy (eBx) using the Axxent System as adjuvant therapy for early stage breast cancer with treatment plans prepared from the same CT image sets using an Iridium-192 (Ir-192) source.
