Medical radioisotopes are specifics medicines, which comprise diagnosis radionuclides and therapeutics radionuclides. They are short-lived radionuclides (hour or days), especially diagnosis radionuclides. Because of that they should be extracted quickly at manufacturing sites and transported in the shortest time as possible to hospitals where they are used. Organizing safely this logistics and supply chain is the main challenge of medical radioisotope economy.
