About Society of Nuclear Medicine

The Society of Nuclear Medicine (SNM), founded in 1954, is the largest scientific organization devoted to nuclear medicine, which is a medical specialty that uses safe, painless, and cost-effective techniques to image the body and treat disease. The SNM membership of more than 16,000 physicians, technologists, physicists, chemists, radiopharmacists, and others is dedicated to demonstrating the value of nuclear medicine through excellence in education, research, and clinical practice of the specialty. The Society of Nuclear Medicine publishes two peer-reviewed journals, the Journal of Nuclear Medicine and the Journal of Nuclear Medicine Technology as well as numerous books and self-study courses. Other major activities of the organization include hosting an Annual Meeting held in June, which attracts more than 7,000 international attendees and over 100 companies. The SNM also sponsors continuing medical education (CME) programs for physicians and technologists and serves as the voice for the nuclear medicine specialty on matters in the health care policy arena.
