A reliable supply of radionuclides is critical for many areas of nuclear medicine.


Shortages have highlighted the need for additional sources of medical radionuclides, especially molybdenum-99.

The Workshop brang together specialists with knowledge in various methods of producing radionuclides for nuclear medicine to share their perspectives. Its outcome wase the provision of sound technical information on the various alternatives.

The Workshop comprised expert presentations on the different methods available for producing medical
radionuclides, and featured speakers from ACSION Industries, AECL, McMaster University, MDS Nordion, TRIUMF, Canadian Society of Nuclear Medicine and others.

This Workshop is of interest to persons with general knowledge of radioactivity, nuclear reactors, accelerators and related technologies who wish to become more knowledgeable about the available methods of producing medical radionuclides.


Includes the 13 papers and presentations given at the CNS Workshop on Medical-Radionuclide Production.
