Abstract : The growth of nuclear medicine in India is linked with the developments in our Atomic Energy Programme. Self-sufficiency in radiopharmaceuticals for both in vivo and in vitro use has been largely achieved. The availability of instrumentation facilities in over 90 nuclear medicine centres is indicated. The activities of the Radiation Medicine Centre, a pioneer institute, in the field of diagnosis, therapy and training of personnel are summarised.
