Nuclear Medicine Database

The IAEA maintains a register of the Nuclear Medicine facilities and the status of nuclear medicine practice around the world. To access this information, please consult NUMDAB.

The NUclear Medicine DAtaBase (NUMDAB) is continuously updated, based on replies to questionnaires circulated by the IAEA among its Member States.

It includes data on facilities, equipment (gamma cameras, PET scanners, cyclotrons, Gamma probes, thyroid uptake systems and densitometers), human resources (technologist, nuclear medicine physicians, medical physicists, radiopharmacists and other scientists working in the nuclear medicine field), radioisotopes and radiopharmaceuticals used, radionuclide therapy and nuclear medicine procedures performed at the facilities.
