The Australasian Association of Nuclear Medicine Specialists (AANMS) is a representative body of medical practitioners working to promote and advance the clinical practice of nuclear medicine for both diagnosis and therapy.
Membership of the AANMS is open to nuclear medicine specialists, trainee specialists (registrars), and other medical specialists with an active interest in nuclear medicine.
The AANMS is of the position that the development of skills and expertise in theranostics is necessary for its safe and effective use in a clinical setting.
AANMS conducts a series of Programs including:
• Advanced Training in Nuclear Medicine
• Training Sites Accreditation Program
• Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
• PET Training
Nuclear medicine uses very small amounts of unsealed radioactive materials (radiopharmaceuticals) to diagnose and treat disease.
Reminder for Nuclear Medicine Specialists: PET TRAINING and CREDENTIALLING
Nuclear medicine specialists who intend to do training in positron emission tomography (PET) must ensure that they submit an application for prospective approval of their PET training to the Committee for Joint College Training (CJCT) in Nuclear Medicine of the RACP and the RANZCR.
