PARADIM

PHITS-based Application for RAdionuclide Dosimetry In Meshes

ABOUT PARaDIM

PARaDIM is a graphical user interface-based application for absorbed dose calculations in a variety of settings in nuclear medicine and radiation protection.  It utilizes anatomically realistic tetrahedral mesh computational phantoms in combination with the well-validated multipurpose Particle and Heavy Ion Transport code System (PHITS) to compute region-level dose and 3D dose distributions with high speed and accuracy.  To obtain a copy of PHITS, please visit here.

01 / VERSATILE
  • Antibody-, peptide-, or small molecule-based endoradiotherapy

  • Brachytherapy

  • External radionuclide exposure

  • Small-animal dosimetry

  • Cell-based dosimetry

  • 3D dose calculation

  • S-value calculation

  • Personalized dosimetry

02 / EASY

The methodology PARaDIM utilizes was previously only possible for professionals with an advanced understanding of a select few particle transport codes. PARaDIM requires no coding skills at all, and sophisticated simulations can be configured and run with just a few mouse clicks.

03 / FREE

As a service to the nuclear medicine community, PARaDIM is provided freely.
