A New Medical Specialty

Abstract

“The history of the living world can be summarized as the elaboration of ever more perfect eyes within a cosmos in which there is always something more to be seen” Nuclear medicine provides new ways to look at the function and biochemistry of all parts of the living human body.People try to pinpoint the “birth of nuclear medicine” to a specific date or event,but it is difficult to do so.Nor did nuclear medicine develop along a continuous growth curve,but rather was the result of “revolutionary” discoveries, some of which had difficulty in being accepted.
