Now US FDA says that "improper usage" of the generator at certain sites is the likely cause of radiation exposure to patients and not faulty devices. According to them increased radiation exposure seen at specific sites was likely was due to the administration of CardioGen-82 generator eluates that contained excessive concentrations of strontium-82 (Sr-82) and strontium-85 (Sr-85).
