December 22nd, 2015 — 

From December 16th-17th/2015 and under the RSRP program support, USNRC/AdSTM provided technical support to the National Atomic Energy Commission (CNEA) of Paraguay. The country is currently experiencing the important installation of its first cyclotron for Positron Emission Tomography radiotracers production. The two days meeting with CNEA was scheduled in order to review the cyclotron licensing documentation and perform a pre-licensing inspection to the cyclotron facility. From CNEA, Luis Moré participated in these discussions. From the cyclotron facility, Felix Barboza (radiochemist) and Freddy from Gómez (Radiation Safety Officer) supported the preoperational inspection.
