A Global Organization

SNMMI is a global and collaborative scientific organization dedicated to both the practice and the science of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging and therapy around the world. SNMMI's worldwide membership totals over 20,000, which includes physicians, scientists, technologists, chemists, radiopharmacists, students and industry representatives from more than 84 countries around the world. SNMMI's Journal of Nuclear Medicine (JNM), the premier international journal of nuclear medicine, reaches over 17,000 individuals each month. SNMMI's Annual Meeting is nuclear medicine's and molecular imaging's largest gathering each year, attracting over 5,000 professional attendees and another 2,500 industry representatives.

At the most recent Annual Meeting in June 2016 in San Diego, California, 35% of registered attendees were from countries other than the United States. Attendees represented over 65 countries. In addition, abstract submissions for SNMMI's Annual Meeting from outside the United States represent close to 67% of all submissions.

SNMMI Headquarters
While SNMMI's headquarters office resides in Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C., its perspective, programs, and growth are as international as its members. As of 2017, 12% of the Society's members reside in more than 84 countries other than the United States.

SNMMI's Programs and Activities 

SNMMI's educational programs and activities reflect the increasing importance and participation of its international members. Such common global nuclear medicine and molecular imaging and therapy issues as quality of care, educating referring physicians and patients, and exploring ways to better share developments in the practice of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging and therapy are but a few of the activities currently underway by Society staff, Committees, Councils, and our Centers of Excellence. This website seeks to constantly expand its offerings to the Society's international members, providing an ever-changing, updated array of global resources and news for nuclear medicine and molecular imaging and therapy professionals literally anywhere on the globe.

SNMMI continues to stay actively involved in several jointly sponsored educational programs and educational outreach activities with regional nuclear medicine and molecular imaging and therapy organizations around the world; both in their home countries, and during SNMMI's Annual Meeting. These joint sponsored programs include not only the sharing of speakers and renown experts on all facets of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging, collaboration on the development of enduring educational materials, and programmatic/administrative support, but also include translation of materials and website development.


Each year, the SNMMI collaborates with international organizations in an effort to continue the exchange of ideas, education and knowledge. Intiatives include:

Nuclear Medicine Global Initiative
3rd Sino-American Conference
Chinese/U.S. Resident Exchange Program
Wagner-Torizuka Fellowship

  • March 1, 2017New PET Radiotracer Identifies Inflammation in Life-Threatening Atherosclerosis

    In the featured article of the March 2017 issue of "The Journal of Nuclear Medicine," researchers demonstrate that a new positron emission tomography (PET) radiotracer, gallium-68 (Ga-68)-pentixafor, can quickly and non-invasively identify life-threatening atherosclerotic plaques. The tracer binds to the CXCR4 receptor on inflammatory cells present in atherosclerotic plaques—making it possible to find and treat atherosclerosis early.
