DOE’s Office of Nuclear Energy produces and sells many stable and radioactive isotopes that are widely used by domestic and international customers for medicine, industry and research. DOE also maintains the infrastructure required to support the national need for a reliable supply of isotope products, services and related technology. In the nuclear medicine field, it is estimated that one in every three people treated at a hospital makes use of a radioisotope in their laboratory tests, diagnoses or therapy. Isotopes have thus become key agents in the diagnosis and effective treatment of various cancers, heart disease and other medical problems. DOE programs ensure the availability of an adequate supply of medical and research isotopes, which is essential to the Nation’s health care system.
