Fujita Utilizes Low Activation Concrete for Construction of PET Imaging Facility.

Tokyo, Japan, Feb 27, 2007 - (JCN) - Fujita Corporation announced its first practical application of their low activation concrete as a radiation shielding material. The concrete was used as shielding material for a small cyclotron in a PET imaging facility that is now under construction in Nagano City.

The neutron shielding effect of this concrete is over 1.7 times that of conventional low activation concrete and is also non-shrinkable, making it highly resistant to cracking.

The higher neutron shielding effect allows for thinner concrete shielding that, as a result, creates more usable space within the PET facility.
