Abstract:
Worldwide, more than 80% of Nuclear Medicine procedures use a radiotracer produced
through a 99Mo/99mTc generator - 99mTc – Technetium 99metastable.
Most of the radiochemistry and equipments is optimized for this radioisotope characteristics
already for more than 35 years, making it very difficult to replace. Worldwide production of
99Mo is based essentially with only five Nuclear Reactors that are
becoming obsolete and fragile with aging, shutting down more and more frequently as they
approach the end of their shelf-life.
Seeking for solutions, some Governments – and the EU – plan to build new dedicated Nuclear
Reactor(s). Our work defends another option.
