Scientific Support for Nuclear Medicine

BNMS Report
Nuclear Medicine is a thriving and evolving specialty where technological advances such as hybrid imaging and new diagnostic and therapeutic agents are leading to improved diagnostic and therapeutic outcomes. As technology becomes increasingly complex, strong scientific support for the service is essential to ensure quality, safety and regulatory compliance.
The purpose of this paper is:
 To highlight the knowledge and skills required to act as a physicist within a Nuclear Medicine service and act as a key duty holder under the relevant legislation
 To describe the functions provided by physicists within Nuclear Medicine
 To provide indicative numbers of staffing for small and large organisations and describe the risk associated with inadequate support
