OEDIPE was developed from the ANTHROPO interface**. This interface was developed in 2000 by the Internal Dosimetry department of the IRSN (SDI) as a tool for calibrating the anthroporadiametric systems used to evaluate internal contamination cases. The first version of OEDIPE, written in PV-Wave®, was a direct extension of dosimetric calculations. A separate module, dedicated to the dosimetric calculations needed for targeted radiotherapy*, was developed in collaboration with group U601 at the INSERM, Nantes.
Unlike earlier versions, the current version of OEDIPE can calculate doses targeted on a single organ and takes account of the temporal distribution of radionuclides within the body. Another important development has been the new graphical interface, especially its ability to superimpose the results of the calculations on patient images. This feature has been made possible by the use of an alternative programming language. The tool was ported to IDL® (Interactive Data Language) by the company RSI® under the direction of the IRSN. This multi-use language has made it possible for OEDIPE to run under all operating systems (Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, etc).
