For reference:

Non-energy applications of nuclear technology are an integral part of life and contribute to the sustainable development of society. Various solutions in this product segment are used in areas such as agriculture, healthcare and industry.

The Health Technologies Division (JSC Rusatom Healthcare) accumulates the expertise of the Rosatom State Corporation in the field of healthcare. The company was created on the basis of Rosatom enterprises and institutes with the goal of comprehensive development of medical technologies in Russia and abroad. The Health Technologies division is developing in four main areas: comprehensive solutions for medicine; production and supply of isotope products (50 countries); equipment for diagnostics and therapy; solutions for ionizing processing of products.

The President and Government of the Russian Federation, relevant departments pay great attention to improving the level of healthcare and the availability of modern medical care. This is one of the significant factors in increasing the length and quality of life of citizens. Large Russian companies provide support for the comprehensive modernization of the healthcare system and the development of appropriate infrastructure.
