A Task Group within ICRP Committee 2 and 3 is continuously working to improve absorbed dose estimates to patients investigated with radiopharmaceuticals. The work deals with reviews of the literature, the initiation of new studies - and often to carry them out in-house. Dose calculations have up to now been done using the MIRD formalism. Recently, a new addendum to ICRP Publication 53 has been published under the name of ICRP Publication 106. This paper present the ongoing work within the Task Group.
