Title: Preliminary Assessment of the Functional Fitness of Alpha Emitter At-211 for Radiotherapy

The functional fitness of the alpha-emitter At-211 for radiotherapy of the thyroid gland cancer is evaluated. Radiation doses are calculated using the MIRD method and previously obtained pharmacokinetic data for At-211 in isotonic solution.
