The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) announced in a recent news release that steps have been taken to ensure a stable and secure supply of 99mTc, the most widely used radioisotope in medical imaging. The FDA approved the RadioGenix System, a unique system for producing 99mTc, and the NRC is issuing guidance and will license the RadioGenix System to enable the 99mTc it produces to be used for its medical purpose.
