Home > Introduction > Greetings

Korean Society of Nuclear Medicine Technology was founded as follows. 7 employees working in the isotope treatment rooms of Seoul National University hospital, Korea Hospital and Korea Cancer Center Hospital were gathered on December 05, 1976 and empathized the needs to start the society of nuclear medicine technology, mentioned it formally in the year-end party on December 18, 1976 and held the initiator meeting. In January 05, 1977, they composed the tentatively named arrangement committee in the isotope room at Korea Cancer Center Hospital, determined the name of society as Korean Society of Nuclear Medicine Technology and selected the articles of association and the executives.

Since then, it has held the conference once a month and spring and autumn symposium. 91 members acquired new knowledge and experience by participating in the third Asia-Pacific Symposium of Radiochemistry held at Shilla Hotel from August 27 ~ 31, 1984.

In 1985, the refresher training scoring system for the medical technician was implemented by Ministry of Health and Welfare, for which Korean Society of Nuclear Medicine Technology Research supervised by Korean Radiological Technologists Association was established for the Radiological technologists and Korea Association of Medicine Testing supervised by Korean Association of Medical Technologists was established for the medical laboratory technologists and the monthly conference and the symposium were performed in Spring and Autumn as the academic activities
In 1991, they agreed to integrate the societies, which were divided into the Radiological technologist and the medical laboratory technologists and changed the name of the representative to the councilor introducing chairman system.
The society made the member registration card, held the public contest for official mark of society, in which Central Hospital team won the best award, and has used it as official mark of the society.
From 1985, the journal of research association and the journal of testing society have been published separately but in 1996 the Journal of Korean Society of Nuclear Medicine Technology was created by integrating the journals of two associations and No.1 of Volume 1 was published.
From February, 2000, the regional education for imaging area was performed for 1 year by the IAEA Professional Nuclear Medicine Technologist Remote Education Program.

We are expecting that the Korean Society of Nuclear Medicine Technology would be developed continuously as we have been through until now.
In 2017, the 40th anniversary of society, we arranged precious data to prepare the publication of history of 40 years implanting the passion for the nuclear medicine, sense of belonging to Korean Society of Nuclear Medicine Technology and the self-confidence in the junior colleagues through the production of biography of elders, which is the memoirs of the elders of society, and presented the direction that the Korean Society of Nuclear Medicine Technology will follow retrospecting our past. We are building win-win cooperative relationship with the outside related organizations making efforts to improve the nuclear medicine technology within the Asian region jointly with Asian Society of Nuclear Medicine Technology (ASNMT) and are performing the academic exchange with American Society of Nuclear Medicine Technology (SNMT).
In addition, we are standing shoulder to shoulder with the advanced countries with the new radio-pharmaceutical manufacturing technology and the quality control technology by establishing the committee for radio-pharmaceuticals and building GMP system, established Nuclear Medicine Quality Control Service for the Society's active response to the 3rd. amendment of relative value scale and are making effort to reinforce the competence for nuclear medicine such as expansion of ISO 15189 recognition, etc. We are preparing now 8th symposium of ASNMT to be held at Bundang on October 28, 2018.

Thank you.
