|Document Title:||Ultrapure Yttrium-90|
|Category:||Health-Related Research and Technologies|
|Date of Image/Photo:||1991|
|Background:||Previous techniques left traces of strontium-90 and metal contaminants, which hampered effective treatment using yttrium. The process removes those contaminants to generate an exceptionally high-quality radioisotope.|
