Research output: Book/ReportReportpeer-review


A 10 MeV proton and 5 MeV deuteron cyclotron built by IBA (Belgium) was installed and commissioned at Soreq Nuclear Research Center towards the end of 2000 This negative ion cyclotron (Cyclone 10/5) is capable of accelerating, in two simultaneous beams, 100 μA of protons that are extracted to two targets on opposite sides of the magnet Eight ports are available; two are used for 18F production and one for solid target irradiation 18FDG is produced daily and delivered to hospitals all over Israel
