In 1981, the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital – The Neuro, became the first medical institution in Canada to be equipped with its own isotope production facility: THE CYCLOTRON. The move to include such a facility within its walls was somewhat revolutionary at the time. By producing its own radioactive tracers used for Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging, The Neuro enabled researchers to uncover the mysteries of how the brain works and clinicians to increase the speed and accuracy of patients’ diagnosis and treatments.

Today, medical cyclotrons are found in cities across the country and isotopes are used around the world for research, and cancer diagnosis and treatment.The cyclotron operates under guidelines set out by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) and as per CNSC regulations we are informing the public that The Neuro is equipped with a cyclotron facility.
