    We're in trouble... US desperately needs isotope production.

    In the United States, 90% of all the medical isotopes are imported, and the remaining 10% are, for the most part, from companies producing a single isotope instead of a wide variety. That becomes a major problem when one considers the shortcomings and unreliability in the supply of medical isotopes. Most of the world's supply of Mo-99 comes from five aging nuclear reactors that are 43 to 52 years old. Moreover, two of them are due to shut down in a few short years -- the Osiris reactor in Saclay, France is due to shut down in 2015, and Canada's NRU reactor is scheduled to be shut down by 2016.
