"It was a catastrophe Adidas Sl Loop Runner Red Croc

in May; now it's turning into a national and international disaster," said Dr. Jean Luc Urbain, president of the Canadian Association of Nuclear Medicine. "The supply is very erratic patchy and erratic."

In the fall, with doctors and patients back from summer vacations, demand on the health system will swell. But the supply of technetium 99m, the diagnostic isotope used for cancer and cardiac tests, won't grow. The situation will be "very bleak," Urbain said.

Across Canada, isotope capacity now ranges from 50% to 90% of normal levels. To make best use of the shrinking and unpredictable supply each week, patient appointments have been altered, and in some cases used less desirable isotopes.

Canada's summer shortage of medical isotopes will worsen dramatically this fall and winter after officials Adidas Chromatech Sl Loop Racer confirmed the Chalk River nuclear reactor won't return to service before late 2009.

this in May. Hugh MacDiarmid said not only will the NRU reactor remain offline for an additional six months, AECL still doesn't know how to make the repairs. The extended shutdown of the world's largest medical isotope producing reactor sets the stage for a global medical crisis by early 2010.

The Petten HFR reactor in The Netherlands, the world's other big global supplier, is to shut for six months of maintenance in early 2010. If the NRU is not running by then, the global supply of medical isotopes will dwindle by 60% to 70%. MacDiarmid hinted that Chalk River could be down even longer than year end.

Until yesterday, AECL would only say repairs would take at least three months.

For example, Dr. Karen Gulenshyn, chief of nuclear medicine for Hamilton Health Sciences and St. Joseph's Healthcare, said they had about 70% to 80% of their usual capacity yesterday, but expected to have only 10% to 20% on Friday.

Doctors and opposition politicians urged the federal government to immediately start co ordinating cross Canada access to PET (Positron Emission Tomography) scans, which don't use technetium, and to start buying new PET scanners. They also want the federal government to revisit the mothballed Maple I and II reactors, which some say could produce the needed isotopes.

"We're teetering on the edge but still remaining upright," said Dr. Chris O'Brien of the Ontario Association of Nuclear Medicine. By early 2010, however, the situation could be "very concerning."
