Physics Colloquium: Challenges in providing alternative medical isotopes

Event Details

  • Speaker(s): Dr. Thomas Ruth
  • Date:
  • Time: 10:30 AM
  • Location: SSC 1511

Abstract

In developing the 100Mo(p,2n)99mTc isotope supply, a number of challenges arose that required an understanding of nuclear physics to solve. Isotopic purity, impact on patient radiation dosimetry and testing methods will be discussed.

Refreshments

Coffee and Refreshments will be available in MacN 218 prior to the colloquium (10:00-10:30 a.m.)
