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 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.
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 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
IAEA CT Case Webinar Series
EANM Collaborative Guidelines

In an article published in the January 2017 issue of "The Journal of Nuclear Medicine," researchers assert that exposure to medical radiation does not increase a person’s risk of getting cancer.
A new therapeutic agent for radioligand therapy called lutetium-177-labeled PSMA-617 is showing promise in a German multi-center study for treating patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. The research was recently published in "The Journal of Nuclear Medicine."

In an article published in the January 2017 issue of "The Journal of Nuclear Medicine," researchers assert that exposure to medical radiation does not increase a person's risk of getting cancer. The long-held belief that even low doses of radiation, such as those received in diagnostic imaging, increase cancer risk is based on an inaccurate, 70-year-old hypothesis, according to the authors.
(SNMMI in the News)
A German multicenter study, initiated by the German Society of Nuclear Medicine, demonstrates that lutetium-177 (Lu-177)-labeled PSMA-617 is a promising new therapeutic agent for radioligand therapy (RLT) of patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). The study is published in the January 2017 issue of "The Journal of Nuclear Medicine" and is the featured article.
