The calculations were based upon biokinetic mod@is and best estimates @f biokinetic data for individual radiopharrnaceuticals. Since 1987 new radiopharmaceuticals have been introduced into regular use. This addendum presents biokinetic and dosimetic data on six new radiopharmaceutics, and is intended to be part of a continuing process of updating.
