Thanks for replying Vladimir.

That particular decay from the $^{90}Zr$ daughter nucleus has applications in medical imaging. There's a plethora of publications looking at it's imaging potential.

Wright. C et. al, 2015, "Theranostic Imaging of $^{90}Y$, Biomed Research International

Pasiack. A, et. al, 2014, "Radioembolization and the Dynamic Role of 90Y PET/CT", Front Oncol.

A simple search for $^{90}Y$ imaging in google provides numerous examples. It's not a huge issue that it's not accounted for. I can work around it.
