The British Nuclear medication Society celebrates its 50th Anniversary with this ebook, which displays the examine of some of the pioneers within the use of radionuclides for the prognosis and remedy of human ailment. on the grounds that 1949 there were outstanding advances in radionuclide ideas and imaging apparatus: from the 1st units “home-made” within the many physics departments through the united kingdom, to the subtle multimodality imagers now in daily use in Nuclear drugs. The BNMS has been instrumental in selling using radionuclide ideas within the research of pathology by means of aiding and delivering schooling, study and instructions at the optimal use of radiation to aid sufferers. the way forward for Nuclear drugs is vivid, due to more advantageous imaging solution, new radiopharmaceuticals, and new diagnostic and healing concepts and procedures.

4. The first home made whole body scanner with a colour print out was built in 1957 at the Hammersmith Hospital by Mallard and Peachey [8]. Also home-made was the first UK digital whole body SPECT scanner in Aberdeen. The first commercial Tri-D scanner was installed in the Royal Marsden Hospital Sutton in 1963. It lacked adequate collimation and soon after a 3″ Picker rectilinear scanner was purchased. In the days before ultrasound I-131 labeled albumin was used to Fig. 4 Professor Val Mayneord inventor of the radioisotope scanner and his wife Audrey with Professor Ian Donald inventor of ultrasound scanning.

Early publications included mediastinal lymph node scanning in 1967 and F-18 imaging of bone metastases also in 1967. Eventually I became a Consultant in Nuclear Medicine in charge of the Nuclear Medicine and Ultrasound Department for over 40 years. With Nuclear Medicine and the Medical Physics departments at either end of the same corridor I was fortunate to be able to take part in many projects involving innovations in nuclear medicine, ultrasound equipment magnetic resonance spectroscopy and radiopharmacy.
