Do you want to know more about nuclear science and medical isotopes? From our nuclear reactor in Petten, we serve 30.000 patients a day with our medical isotopes for nuclear medicine. We provide solutions to advance nuclear medicine ranging from complete irradiation services for medical isotope production, to access to R&D resources & commercial processing.
Check out some of our resources below to learn more about the world of medical isotopes
Lutetium-177 (Lu-177) is a medical isotope used in targeted radionuclide therapy for treating neuroendocrine tumours and prostate cancer. It is produced in NRG’s nuclear facility and it is currently the most commonly used isotope for targeted radionuclide therapy.
An medical isotope is a variation of a certain element. Isotopes of the same element share the same number of protons and the same arrangement of electrons, but the number of neutrons differs. Due to this difference the physical properties of isotopes vary. For example, some isotopes are unstable, and others are not.
