The British Nuclear drugs Society celebrates its 50th Anniversary with this ebook, which displays the study of some of the pioneers within the use of radionuclides for the analysis and treatment of human ailment. given that 1949 there were amazing advances in radionuclide thoughts and imaging apparatus: from the 1st units “home-made” within the many physics departments during the united kingdom, to the subtle multimodality imagers now in daily use in Nuclear medication. The BNMS has been instrumental in selling using radionuclide suggestions within the research of pathology through assisting and delivering schooling, learn and directions at the optimal use of radiation to aid sufferers. the way forward for Nuclear drugs is vibrant, due to more desirable imaging solution, new radiopharmaceuticals, and new diagnostic and healing innovations and procedures.

Those were the days in which anything was possible. The burdensome legislation governing the use of radioactivity was yet to come. In the mid 1960s Glass and Westerman installed the UK’s first Anger Gamma Camera at the Hammersmith. A local firm Ekco Electronics Ltd in Southend constructed an Anger type gamma camera in 1964 using 9 photomultipler tubes and a 5 in.
