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

  • July 19, 2017Brain scans may change care for some people with memory loss

    Findings, reported Wednesday, mark a first peek at a huge study under way to help determine if Medicare should start paying for specialized PET scans that find a hallmark of Alzheimer's — a sticky plaque called amyloid.For now, in addition to people who qualify for the IDEAS study, the Alzheimer's Association and Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging say unusually young dementia patients, younger than 65, also might be candidates for a PET scan. The scans shouldn't be used as a screening tool for people without symptoms or who worry they're at risk. Nor are they for people who can be diagnosed by standard means, or to determine disease severity.
