Abstract

We have proposed a new method of producing medical radioisotope 92Y as a candidate of alternatives of 111In bioscan prior to 90Y ibritumomab tiuxetan treatment. The 92Y isotope is produced via the 92Zr (n,p) reaction using accelerator neutrons generated by the interaction of deuteron beams with carbon. A feasibility experiment was performed at Cyclotron and Radioisotope Center, Tohoku University. A carbon thick target was irradiated by 20-MeV deuterons to produce accelerator neutrons. The thick target neutron yield (TTNY) was measured by using the multiple foils activation method. The foils were made of Al, Fe, Co, Ni, Zn, Zr, Nb, and Au. The production amount of 92Y and induced impurities were estimated by simulation with the measured TTNY and the JENDL-4.0 nuclear data.
