  Article:   THE PRODUCTION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF SOME MEDICALLY USED RADIOISOTOPES.

Authors:  O. COZAR, LAURA DARABAN.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  The isotopic neutron sources of 241Am-9Be and 239Pu-9Be and the cyclotron were used for the production of some medical interest radioisotopes such as: 116mIn,56Mn, 198Au, 61,64Cu. The 64Cu radioisotope is both a beta and a positron emitter, being used for labelling of PET imaging radiopharmaceuticals. This radioisotope was also obtained by irradiation of 64Zn target at a Scanditronix MC40 cyclotron with a 19.5 MeV deuteron beam energy. All produced radioisotopes were analysed by ╬│-spectrometry with Ge-Li detectors.
