Results of obtaining of 186Re for nuclear medicine using 13 MeV deuterons were presented. Cross section and yield of 186W(d,2n)186Re reaction were experimentally measured in the deuterons energy range from the threshold up to 13 MeV. The total yield of 186Re in the energy range 12.5/6.43 MeV from natural tungsten was measured as (2.3 ± 0.15) MBq/(uA·h). The yield of the 186Re from enriched 186W for deuteron energy 12.5 MeV was evaluated as (8.2 ± 0.13)MBq/(uA·h). Possibility of 186Re obtaining in sufficient quantities for a radiopharmaceuticals synthesis was established. On the basis of data on the yield 186Re it is confidently expected that using of Tomsk Polytechnic University cyclotron can produce enough amount of 186Re for using in nuclear medicine.
