British Columbia: B-C is spending more than 50 million dollars to boost support for cancer treatment across the province through the addition of a new lab for making imaging isotopes and other investments.
Construction is underway for the lab in Vancouver that will increase the production of radioactive isotopes used in medical imaging for cancer detection.
Health Minister Adrian Dix says the increased isotope production will also support research efforts on treating cancer.
The province says the TRIUMF facility on the University of B-C campus will get funding to expand its lab capacity in support of
researching future cancer treatments.
