"Creation of Armenia based production of radio nuclides for nuclear medicine and corresponding radio-pharmaceutical preparations on the linear
electron accelerator of the A. I. Alikhanyan National Science Laboratory (former Yerevan Physics Institute) is the primary goal of the department.
Preliminary studies which we conducted in the framework of the
and CNCP - A1785P
projects have shown that in the near future it is possible to create the full-scale production, which could satisfy the basic needs of the Armenian
clinics in medical isotopes, especially short-lived radioisotopes (99mTc, 123I, etc.)"

"NUCLEAR MEDICINE PHYSICS: a Handbook for Teachers and Students" -
This handbook comprehensively covers the physics of nuclear medicine.
it is intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students of medical physics.
it will also serve as a resource for interested readers from other disciplines, for
example, clinicians, radiochemists and medical technologists who would like to
familiarize themselves with the basic concepts and practice of nuclear medicine
