In recent years the field of nuclear medicine has been undergoing a renaissance. The widespread application of SPECT imaging and slow diffusion of PET techniques have revitalized nuclear imaging. At the same time rapid developments in radiopharmaceuticals have produced new imaging methods. These developments have increased the need for well-trained medical physicists to work in the university setting and to assist smaller hospitals with implementing these techniques.
