The Computer and Instrumentation Council is composed of Society members who have an interest in computers, nuclear instrumentation, data analysis and medical physics and their applications in therapeutic, diagnostic or investigational nuclear medicine. It provides a source of information relating to computers, nuclear instrumentation science, data analysis and medical physics to the Society through meetings, seminars, and publications. 

The Computer and Instrumentation Council's (CaIC) mission is to promote the dissemination of knowledge and the advancement of computers, nuclear instrumentation, data analysis and medical physics and their applications for diagnosis and treatment in nuclear medicine to its members and to the Society of Nuclear Medicine as a whole. The objectives of the Council to carry out the mission are:

  1. To promote effective use of computers, nuclear instrumentation, data analysis and medical physics in the diagnostic, therapeutic, and investigational applications of nuclear medicine, including molecular imaging initiatives;
  2. To provide a forum for the members of the Society of Nuclear Medicine who have an interest in computers, nuclear instrumentation, data analysis and medical physics;
  3. To provide members of the Society of Nuclear Medicine with a source of information on computers, nuclear instrumentation, data analysis and medical physics.
