Proliferation dangers associated with nuclear medicine (HEU). MAPW - 2008

The near-universal use of weapons-grade, highly enriched uranium (HEUi) to produce radiopharmaceuticals used in medicine, is a significant hazard. This peer-reviewed paper argues that health professionals should stop the use of HEUi in medicine, as a vulnerable pathway to creating a 'terrorist bomb'. Produced by MAPW doctors Bill Williams and Tilman Ruff, it was published in 2008.
