Nuclear reactions, which are very important from the point of view of human health, may occur during the production of the radiation sources, used in radiotherapy. The nuclear reaction data are needed in the radioisotope production procedure. The total cross section is also important in accelerator technology, in view of radiation protection and safety. In general, the significance of the cross section data for nuclear reactions in radionuclide production programs is firmly established. Gamma irradiation tracers can offer a large amount of information about the anatomy of different organs in the human body. The main purpose of this work was to compare the cross section of longer-shorter lived radionuclides. Theoretical excitation functions have been calculated with TALYS 1.6 nuclear reaction simulation code. The calculated results have been discussed and compared with the experimental data.
