Owing to its favourable decay characteristics 177Lu [T(1/2)=6.71 d, Ebeta(max)=497 keV] is an attractive radionuclide for various therapeutic applications. Production of 177Lu using [176Lu (n,gamma)177Lu] reaction by thermal neutron bombardment on natural as well as enriched lutetium oxide target is described. In all, approximately 4 TBq/g (108 Ci/g) of 177Lu was obtained using natural Lu target after 7 d irradiation at 3 x 10(13) n/cm2/s thermal neutron flux while it was approximately 110 TBq… CONTINUE READING
