During the production of the radiation source that used in radiotherapy may occur nuclear reactions are very important in terms of human health. Cs-137 is used in radiotherapy that consists of fission the U-235 core. Because of physical half-live of Cs-137 is 30 years, it is advantage for the radioactive half-lives. In this study, radionuclide production reaction cross section for U-235 (n,f)Cs-137 is calculated with TALYS 1.6 nuclear simulation code that based on Monte Carlo.
