The objective of PASSOS (Personalised assessment of late health risks after exposure to ionising radiation and guidance for radiation applications in medicine) is the assessment of the risk of cancer and cardiovascular diseases after medical radiation exposure, considering individual factors. Treatment techniques of breast cancer therapy and cardiac diagnostic procedures are investigated. More...
The project is divided into the following work packages:
- PASSOS Heart Study: Epidemiological study of cardiovascular risks after breast cancer therapy
- Dosimetry Breast Cancer Treatment Techniques: Whole-body dose distribution of different treatment techniques in breast cancer patients with good prognosis
- Dosimetry Heart Diagnostics: Whole-body dose distribution of different imaging modalities for diagnosis of heart diseases with good prognosis
- Personalised Risks: Personalised Risks for radiation induced late health effects
