Titanium-44 is used to manufacture standards and sources for radiometric equipment calibration, to produce positron emission sources and Sc-44 generators. It is also applied in scientific research.

Titanium-44 is the parent isotope for scandium-44 used in medical diagnostics. Scandium-44 is too short-lived isotope for logistics from nuclear centers to medical institutions (half-life 4 hours). Therefore, special mobile isotope generators fueled with titanium-44 are transferred to medical centers. As 44Ti decays, the accumulated scandium-44 is washed out of the generator by chemical methods.
