SNMMI's worldwide membership totals over 18,000, which includes physicians, scientists, technologists, chemists, radiopharmacists, students and industry representatives from more than 75 countries around the world. SNMMI's Journal of Nuclear Medicine (JNM), the premier international journal of nuclear medicine, reaches over 18,000 individuals each month. SNMMI's Annual Meeting is nuclear medicine's and molecular iamging's largest gathering each year, attracting over 4,000 professional attendees and another 2,500 industry representatives.

At the most recent Annual Meeting in June 2013 in Vancouver, BC, Canada, 38% of registered attendees were from countries other than the United States. Attendees represented over 69 countries. In addition, abstract submissions for SNMMI's Annual Meeting from outside the United States represent close to 65% 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 2013, more than 11.8% of the Society's members reside in more than 75 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
IAEA CT Case Webinar Series
EANM Collaborative Guidelines

SNMMI Clinical Trials Network Webinar Series

CTN Oncology Phantom Scanner Validation Results: What Does the Data Mean?
October 15, 2015 at 3:00 pm ET
Speaker: John Sunderland

This webinar will examine the data collected from the SNMMI Clinical Trials Network Oncology Phantom. Since its inception in 2008, the Clinical Trials Network has collected over 400 sets of phantom data from over 230 scanners located at imaging sites world-wide using the CTN oncology clinical simulator phantom. These scanners include most commercially-available PET/CT systems, ranging from the older, basic models to the most current state-of-the-art systems. The overall set-up and management of this unique program along with results from the acquired data offer participants vital information on the importance of standardizing reconstruction parameters and performing rigid, ongoing quality control of your PET/CT system.
