What are some uses of Molybdenum-99 (Mo-99)?
All I really know is that it is often used for medical procedures but I don't know what kind of procedures or any other uses it may have. Thanks =) Asked by Larry Jong 1 year ago.

the most common isotopic molybdenum application involves molybdenum-99, which is a fission product. It is a parent radioisotope to the short-lived gamma-emitting daughter radioisotope technetium-99m, a nuclear isomer which is used in various imaging applications in medicine.[9] A reactor-produced radioisotope of molybdenum with a half-life of 2.7476 days, used in radionuclide generators for the production of technetium-99m. 3-D scanning technique: SPECT Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is a nuclear medicine imaging technique using gamma rays. It may be used with any gamma-emitting isotope, including Tc-99m. In the use of technetium-99m, the radioisotope is administered to the patient and the escaping gamma rays are incident upon a moving gamma camera which computes and processes the image. To acquire SPECT images, the gamma camera is rotated around the patient. Projections are acquired at defined points during the rotation, typically every 3-6 degrees. In most cases, a full 360 degree rotation is used to obtain an optimal reconstruction. The time taken to obtain each projection is also variable, but 15–20 seconds is typical. This gives a total scan time of 15–20 minutes. The technetium-99m radioisotope is used predominantly in both bone and brain scans to check for any irregularities.[clarification needed] Although Tc-99m is used for diagnostic nuclear medicine imaging procedures, it is not used for any therapeutic procedures. [edit] Common nuclear medicine techniques using technetium-99m [edit] Bone scan The nuclear medicine technique commonly called the bone scan usually uses Tc-99m. It is not to be confused with the different "bone density scan," DEXA, which is a low exposure X-ray test measuring bone density to look for osteoporosis and other diseases where bones lose mass without re-building activity. The nuclear medicine technique in sensitive to areas of unusual bone re-building activity, since the radiopharmaceutical is taken up by osteoblast cells which build bone. The technique therefore is sensitive to fractures and bone reaction to bone tumors, including metastases. For a bone scan, the patient is injected with a small amount of radioactive material such as 20-30 mCi of technetium-99m-MDP and then scanned with a gamma camera. In order to view small lesions (less than 1 cm) especially in the spine, the SPECT imaging technique may be required, but currently in the United States, most insurance companies require separate authorization for SPECT imaging. [edit] Myocardial perfusion imaging Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) is a form of functional cardiac imaging, used for the diagnosis of ischemic heart disease. The underlying principle is that under conditions of stress, diseased myocardium receives less blood flow than normal myocardium. MPI is one of several types of cardiac stress test. Several radiopharmaceuticals and radionuclides may be used for this, each giving different information. In the myocardial perfusion scans using Tc-99m, the radiopharmaceuticals 99mTc-tetrofosmin (Myoview®, GE Healthcare) or 99mTc-sestamibi (Cardiolite®, Bristol-Myers Squibb) are used. Following this, the heart rate is raised to induce myocardial stress, either by exercise or pharmacologically with adenosine, dobutamine or dipyridamole (aminophylline can be used to reverse the effects of dipyridamole). Scanning may then be performed with a conventional gamma camera, or with SPECT. [edit] Cardiac ventriculography In cardiac ventriculography, a radionuclide, which usually is 99mTc, is injected, and the heart is imaged to evaluate the flow through it. This test is done to evaluate coronary artery disease (CAD), valvular heart disease, congenital heart diseases, cardiomyopathy, and other cardiac disorders.[13] It exposes patients to less radiation than do comparable chest x-ray studies.[13] [edit] Functional brain imaging Usually the gamma-emitting tracer used in functional brain imaging is 99mTc-HMPAO (hexamethylpropylene amine oxime, exametazime). The similar 99mTc-EC tracer may also be used. These molecules are preferentially distributed to regions of high brain blood flow, and act to assess brain metabolism regionally, in an attempt to diagnose and differentiate the different causal pathologies of dementia. When used with the 3-D SPECT technique, they compete with brain FDG-PET scans and fMRI brain scans as techniques to map the regional metabolic rate of brain tissue. [edit] Immunoscintigraphy Immunoscintigraphy incorporates 99mTc into a monoclonal antibody, an immune system protein, capable of binding to cancer cells. A few hours after injection, medical equipment is used to detect the gamma rays emitted by the 99mTc; higher concentrations indicate where the tumor is. This technique is particularly useful for detecting hard-to-find cancers Answered by Oneida Traviss 1 year ago.

this could be a waste of time, this could be in video games (for infants).
