  • Isotopes
  • Radioactive tracers have many advantages over other tracers, which include the identity of chemical and physical properties of all isotopes of a given element, the emission of radiation is a specific property of the tracer which is not affected by interference from other materials in the system, radioisotopes are measurable with high sensitivity and therefore detectable in very low concentration and the measurement in situ is possible.

  • nuclear
  • Some commercial initiatives for generating Mo-99 and other radioisotopes are being developed in order to circumvent reliance on foreign suppliers and on the limited number of available federal and private nuclear reactors and processing facilities in the United States. (the-scientist.com)
  • The field of nuclear medicine covers use of radioisotopes for diagnosis or treatment. (wikipedia.org)
  • The advance of the nuclear industry in all its forms coupled with growing concerns for possible environmental contamination has led to an increased interest in the quantification of radioisotopes in the environment. (environmental-expert.com)
  • processes
  • Radioisotope-based measurement techniques are best suited for multiphase flow systems encountered in industrial processes, since these systems are opaque and contain a large volume fraction of the dispersed phase. (environmental-expert.com)
  • medical
  • Though still in the planning stages, such projects may be able to produce all the Mo-99 physicians could want, as well as a wider variety of other radioisotopes, each with its own specific medical application. (the-scientist.com)
  • The third mandate of the HLG-MR will allow for an extension of its work in the field of security of supply of medical radioisotopes. (oecd-nea.org)
  • natural
  • Continuous monitoring of the concentration of natural and anthropogenic radioisotopes is of the utmost importance in the estimation of an individual's received dose. (springer.com)
  • Major
  • Major radioisotope producers across the world have contributed the methodologies reflecting their practical experience gained over several years. (iaea.org)
  • methods
  • In this case, CT and PET scanning, which use other radioisotopes, can serve as alternative diagnostic methods, but these procedures have drawbacks ranging from increased cost and greater radiation burden to lower image quality. (the-scientist.com)
  • years
  • Secularists claim that radioisotope ages "objectively and scientifically" confirm millions of years. (icr.org)
  • Last month, the Creation Q & A column briefly answered the following question: Does radioisotope dating prove that the earth is millions of years. (icr.org)
