Current Events: U.S. National Academies Report on Eliminating
Highly Enriched Uranium

The majority of medical radioisotopes used in the United States are produced using highly enriched uranium (HEU) reactors in Canada and Europe. Not surprisingly, this has led to serious tensions regarding the state of nuclear security and non-proliferation in the US. As a result, a report by the U.S. National Academies was mandated by the Congress to examine the feasibility of eliminating the use of HEU in reactor fuel, reactor targets, and medical isotope production facilities.
