Abstract:

In 2012, the Australian Government announced a $168.8 million investment that will position Australia as a global leader in the manufacture of nuclear medicine.

The ANSTO Nuclear Medicine (ANM) Project will enable ANSTO to triple production of Molybdenum-99 (Mo-99). The increased capacity will enable Australia to meet domestic demand, as well as being able to supply up to 25-30% of global demand. Used for 80 per cent of nuclear medicines, Mo-99 decays to Tc-99m which is the base material used in the diagnosis of cancers, heart disease, muscular and skeletal conditions. Construction of Australia’s new nuclear medicine production facility began in mid 2014 and remains on target for completion in 2016.

This presentation will provide an update on the ANM project, its objectives and the status of construction, including any special considerations for the radiopharmaceutical production facility.
