The Cyclotron

UT Southwestern's cyclotron

The facility housing UT Southwestern Medical Center's Cyclotron and Radiochemistry Program features a state-of-the-art General Electric PETtrace 880 cyclotron. The cyclotron can produce both conventional and unconventional isotopes (15O, 13N, 11C, 18F; 64Cu, 86Y, and 89Zr) for clinical and preclinical research with PET on campus.

With the maximum proton beam current of 130 μA at 16.5 MeV, the cyclotron is capable of both proton and deuteron dual beams.
