The Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) market is expected to witness tremendous growth owing to the new 99mtc
labelled agents for visualizing biologically significant events, and integration of X-ray tomography (CT) In SPECT.
"Iran now exports technetium generator (or colloquially a technetium cow or moly cow, a device used to extract the metastable isotope 99mTc
of technetium from a source of decaying molybdenum-99) to many countries and if we can produce molybdenum, we will become fully self-sufficient in this area and of course, today we have had many successes in radio medicine production technology," Saqari said.
