Abstract

A system was developed for producing short-lived radioactive substances (11CO, 11CO2, 13NN, 13NH3, 18F-, 62Zn2+, 123I-, etc.) on a scale enough for clinical use, which could also be used for analyzing them rapidly and for investigating their production methods, with less received dose by workers. The system enabled us to produce remotely several tens mCi of of short-lived radioactive susbtances readily usable for clinical diagnosis, continuosly for radioactive gases, 11CO, 11CO2 and 13NN, or repeatedly at short intervals for radioactive aqueous solutions of 13NH3, 18F-, etc. Employing this system, the average received dose per month was reduced considerably.
