Cyclotron Production of Non-PET Radionuclides

Session Organizers:
Nigel R. Stevenson, Clear Vascular, Inc., USA
Flavia Groppi, Universitá egli Studi di Milano, Laboratorio LASA, Italy

Commercial (~30 MeV) and lower energy (“PET cyclotron”) manu-facture of SPECT and other non-PET tracers can represent a significant portion of the isotopes in routine and R&D production at these types of facilities. This session will cover recent improvements in the methodology for the production of isotopes at these locations. The session will focus on the production of novel isotopes, isotope production challenges and improvements, accelerator developments, target design, target chemistry challenges and improvements to existing production programs in order to meet changing market demands.
