MUGA Phantom Data

Medical Physicist Mike Avison from Royal Bradford Infirmary has shared his useful resource link with the BNMS for testing repeatability of operators and/or software.

These data may be helpful to anyone:-
Comparing MUGA processing software for compatibility of EF calculation
Testing software for reproducibility
Testing operators for inter-operator reproducibility

Right click on the link and save as.

If operators are involved you would want to mix studies from the different groups.

Note that the first 6 links are just single study examples, the next 6 are zip files with over 10 studies in each. 

(Dicom viewer is required to open files.)

If anyone wants to compare results, request some different data etc Mike would be happy to hear from you.

IAEA - Release of Nuclear Cardiology publication & recorded seminar series

The publication "Nuclear Cardiology: Guidance on the Implementation of SPECT Myocardial Perfusion Imaging” IAEA Human Health Series No. 23, has been released.

This publication is a result of collaboration between renowned experts in the field and IAEA scientific staff members. It provides a detailed analysis of all the steps involved in the delivery of nuclear cardiology services, from referrals to reporting, and is intended to serve as guidance for the implementation, homogenization and enhancement of MPI practice in those Member States where the technique is under development.

We hope that this publication will further facilitate increased knowledge and better understanding of Nuclear Cardiology and its role as a cost effective tool for the evaluation and management of cardiac patients and its importance in diagnosis, prognosis and risk stratification.

For access to download the publication select the following link Nuclear Cardiology: Guidance on the Implementation of SPECT Myocardial Perfusion Imaging

Furthermore the IAEA’s Nuclear Medicine and Diagnostic Imaging Section, together with the European Society of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) present you a selection of recorded seminars from the series on ‘Basic Nuclear Medicine’ and ‘Paediatric Nuclear Medicine’.

50th Anniversary Commemorative Book - Open Access

The BNMS, under the auspices of Professor Ralph McCready, Chief Editor, are publishing a 50th Anniversary Commemorative Book entitled "A History of Radionuclide Studies in the UK - 50th Anniversary of the British Nuclear Medicine Society"

Anniversary book

The book reflects the research of many of the pioneers in the use of radionuclides for the diagnosis and therapy of human disease. Since 1949 there have been remarkable advances in radionuclide techniques and imaging equipment: from the first devices “home-made” in the many physics departments throughout the UK, to the sophisticated multimodality imagers now in everyday use in Nuclear Medicine. The BNMS has been instrumental in promoting the use of radionuclide techniques in the investigation of pathology by supporting and providing education, research and guidelines on the optimum use of radiation to help patients.

The future of Nuclear Medicine is bright, thanks to improved imaging resolution, new radiopharmaceuticals, and new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques and procedures.


The book is intended to act as a reference source for UK nuclear medicine and will be a commemorative gift for registered *delegates attending the BNMS Annual Spring Meeting, 17th - 19th April 2016 at the ICC in Birmingham 



*Main conference delegates only

CRUK, ECMC and UK Radiopharmacy Taskforce (CERT

CERT aims to provide a common understanding of regulatory requirements for clinical trials that involve radiopharmaceuticals. At this link you will find step by step guidance and advice related to the set-up of clinical trials, associated quality systems and regulatory requirements when using molecular radiopharmaceutical Investigational Medicinal Products
