Direct production of Curie quantities of 99mTc using an isotopically enriched 
target of 1000Mo is possible with any of the commercially available compact 
cyclotrons. Simultaneous production of 100-mCi quantities of 100Mo is also 
possible with the higher energy models of the compact cyclotrons. Experimental 
data indicate that yields of 15Ci/hr of 99mTc and 500mCi/hr of 99Mo are 
possible with 22-MeV protons at a target power level of 10kW (estimated 
maximum power level of currently available target systems). Production of 
significant quantities of these radionuclides (normally reactor produced) 
increases the usefulness of the medical cyclotron and adds strength to the 
justification for its installation in a metropolitan medical center.
