The Chalk River, Ontario nuclear reactor resumed production of medical isotopes on August 17th. The reactor supplied a third of the world's medical imaging isotopes until Atomic Energy of Canada shut it down in May, 2009 after discovering a pinhole-size radioactive water leak. Doctor Jean-Luc Urbaine, the head of the Canadian Society of Nuclear Medicine, said there was still concern the reactor could break down again. (What was originally supposed to be a month-long shut-down of the 53-year-old reactor lasted more than a year.)
