Dear Radsafe:
            One  could probably produce medical isotopes using one of these 
new, small,  modular
reactors.  A group of hospitals, a corporation, a National Lab etc.  with 
deep pockets could
probably buy such a reactor and start to produce Tc-99 etc. rather  
quickly.  I expect the $$$
from sales of such isotopes could be quite large.
            At  the end of its lifetime, such a reactor might??? be shipped 
off to France for 
reprocessing.  This doesn't sound difficult to do at all.
             Regards,    Joseph R. (Joe) Preisig, PhD
