Happy Nuclear Medicine
As kids we all learned
that Superman came from the Planet Krypton and
kryptonite can sap Superman's strength. In
nuclear medicine Krypton-81m is a radioactive gas
used for pulmonary ventilation studies. Kr-81m
has a 13 second half-life and is produced by a Rb-Kr

longer available in the U.S. Mallinckrodt
produces this generator (KryptoScan) in other
countries, including Europe.
