Title A Study of Potential Accelerator Production of Radioisotopes for Both Diagnostics and Therapy
Abstract There is currently much interest in accelerator based replacements for radioisotope production. The primary focus is the use of compact low energy (<30MeV) proton accelerators that can provide local on-site production of short lived isotopes and as a replacement for the current reactor production of important isotopes such as Ga-68. As part of a study into the viability of this production method this work undertakes a benchmarking study the GEANT4 code using the new low energy data-driven physics list QGSPBICAllHP for the production of significant diagnostic and therapy isotopes such as F-18 and Ga-68. results from these simulations will be compared to experimental cross-sections and other codes to determine reliability before being used to further asses the activity producible using these reactions.
