Mayo Clinic Scottsdale’s new, single-story, freestanding radiochemistry building houses a cyclotron and radiochemistry lab to produce radiopharmaceuticals utilized in PET/CT imaging for advanced services to cancer patients.
The design features critical workflow and integrated systems incorporated into early states of design. Elements included highly specialized concrete shielding/vault design, with future planning for the removal or replacement of the cyclotron as technology advances, and underground conduits and pneumatic tube systems to expedite delivery of radioactive isotopes to the point of care.
- New building, designed for unique radiochemistry needs and considerations
- PET Trace cyclotron, radiochemistry lab, clean processing room, offices, equipment room, support spaces, and a future retail component to provide flexibility in production for other facilities
