Foreword
This publication highlights the importance of continuous and reliable supply 
of medical isotopes to the Netherlands, Europe and the rest of the world. It 
also describes the substantial efforts taken by all supply chain partners 
towards breakthroughs that improve future nuclear health care services and 
treatment of patients.
The development of new therapeutic applications of isotopes is illustrated 
with several examples.
The Netherlands has an internationally recognised unique position: it is the 
world’s largest supplier of molybdenum-99/ technetium-99m, it hosts all supply
chain partners within its borders, it has a long tradition in supply chain 
collaboration, it is a renowned developer of new international breakthroughs 
in new therapy and diagnostics and it is progressing well on the new multi-
functional facility for medical isotopes, the PALLAS-reactor, the core of 
the infrastructure for the decades to come.
