Abstract
Monte Carlo simulations were carried out to study the response of a thyroid monitor for measuring intake activities of (125)I and (131)I. The aim of the study was 3-fold: to cross-validate the Monte Carlo simulation programs, to study the response of the detector using different phantoms and to study the effects of anatomical variations. Simulations were performed using the Swiss reference phantom and several voxelised phantoms. Determining the position of the thyroid is crucial for an accurate determination of radiological risks. The detector response using the Swiss reference phantom was in fairly good agreement with the response obtained using adult voxelised phantoms for (131)I, but should be revised for a better calibration for (125)I and for any measurements taken on paediatric patients.
