Isotopes now being used by researchers at University of Saskatchewan
Researchers at the University of Saskatchewan have been granted permission to start making radioisotopes for medical use. Medical isotopes are used in PET-CT scans, and can help identify many types of cancer.
In the past, medical isotopes have had to be flown in from suppliers outside of the province. However, after years of work, researchers at the university have developed a way to produce the material in Saskatchewan. Read more.
