The 89Zr, is one of the radionuclide with near-ideal properties for PET due to its suitable half-life and decay properties. The cross-section of 89Zr via 89Y(p,n)89Zr, 89Y(d,2n)89Zr, natSr(α,xn)89Zr and natZr(p,pxn)89Zr, were calculated by the TALYS-1.8 code to predict the optimum range of charge particle energy. The Monte Carlo code GEANT4 was used to… CONTINUE READING
