International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA: This is the May, 2010 review of worldwide production and supply of molybdenum 99, which is extremely important in diagnostic nuclear medicine. In February, 2010 a letter was sent to the Office of Science and Technology Policy, The White House recommending that the United States focus on domestic production of molybdenum 99.
