Charged-particle cross section database for medical radioisotope production and beam monitor reactions

The database contains evaluated cross sections for production reactions induced by light charged-particles with incident energies up to several tens of MeV (maximum 1000 MeV) and needed beam monitor reactions. Production cross sections for the most important as well as many emerging diagnostic and therapeutic radionuclides have been evaluated by worldwide experts participating in IAEA Research projects that started in 1995 and are still on-going.

References and numerical data of evaluated cross sections including thr recommended decay data are available:
Gamma emitters; Positron emitters; Therapeutic radionuclides; and Beam monitor reactions (2017).
For cross-reference the old 2001 monitor data are also available at Beam monitor reactions (2001).

Note that some nuclei belong to several categories, e.g., 64Cu production data is clasified as a "therapeutic radionuclide", but it is also a positron emitter.

Definitions of the quantities given - production yields and cross sections - can be found here (pdf,15 kB).

Data are also available in ENDF-6 format for protons, deuterons, Helium-3, and alpha particles.
A description of the formatting procedure is given in the report IAEA-NDS-210 (pdf, 68 KB).

The online database was developed by S. Takacs (ATOMKI) in 2003, and upgraded by S. Takacs (ATOMKI) in 2007, 2017, and 2019.
