Radioisotopes have potential for medical diagnosis and treatment

Using its electron linear accelerator, researchers have enabled two companies to demonstrate new methods for the production of molybdenum-99, the parent isotope of technetium-99m – a medical isotope that could face short supply. The laboratory is also expanding its radioisotope program with the goal of performing groundbreaking research and carrying out the development and demonstration needed for supplying a range of key radioisotopes through the DOE Isotope Program.
