A cyclotron is a type of compact particle accelerator which produces radioactive isotopes that can be used for imaging procedures. Stable, non-radioactive isotopes are put into the cyclotron which accelerates charged particles (protons) to high energy in a magnetic field.
IBA has a unique expertise in developing particle accelerators for SPECT and PET . Up until now, IBA has provided adapted technology solutions to produce radioisotopes to hundreds of hospitals, nuclear medicine departments, PET production and distribution laboratories as well as R&D centers and biotechs worldwide. IBA offers comprehensive cyclotron packages, including installation and peripheral devices used to manufacture radiopharmaceuticals for nuclear medicine.
