Here's a good place to start:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gallium-68_generator .  You might also poke
around on the NRC's website and http://www.snmmi.org/ (the Nuc Med
Society).  In the meantime, I'll try to find a good primer, maybe in the *J
Nucl Med*.

Hey all - I recently came across a reference to Ge-68 / Ga-68 for medical
use. I have to admit that this is a new one to me; I did some on-line
looking but couldn't turn up much. I was wondering if anyone out there in
Radsafe-land can point me in the direction of some better information. I'm
curious about what it's used for, who makes it, how much activity is in the
generators, etc. Just wondering - and thanks!
