SNM expands mission to improve patient care by advancing molecular imaging and therapy

Reston, Va. -- SNM, an international scientific and professional organization of more than 16,000 physician, technologist and scientist members, announced that it has redefined its core mission and intends "to improve health care by advancing molecular imaging and therapy."

"We have reached a defining moment--one where molecular imaging and nuclear medicine merge into one at SNM--and one that will impact the evolution of molecular medicine and current practitioners and those of generations to come," noted SNM President Martin P.
