Guidelines in Nuclear Medicine have been, and continue to be, developed by a number of professional organisations throughout the world - some of them are linked to in the ‘Related Links’ section. National regulations on the administration of radioactive substances and differences in clinical practice and service delivery mean that not all Guidelines necessarily apply across every region/country.
Guidelines are only designed to provide to the nuclear medicine team a framework, which could prove helpful in daily practice. Since these evidence-based frameworks can form the fundamentals for local protocols, they clearly cannot supply the detail required in each individual department. Guidelines should not be utilized in clinical studies at any institution until they have been reviewed and approved by qualified physicians from that specific institution.
