The European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) is the umbrella organisation of nuclear medicine in Europe and represents the sector towards the European Institutions. Within this role, the EANM aims at advancing science and education in nuclear medicine for the benefit of public health as well as at promoting and co-ordinating, throughout Europe and beyond, discussion and exchange of ideas and results relating to the diagnosis, treatment, research and prevention of diseases through the use of unsealed radioactive substances and the properties of stable nuclides in medicine. The goal of the EANM is thus to provide a suitable medium for the dissemination and discussion of the latest results in the field of nuclear medicine and related subjects.

The EANM has come a long way since its foundation in 1985; much has been accomplished and the organisation has become highly professional. In the coming years the association will strive to increase further the scientific strength of European nuclear medicine and to publicise its unique investigative and therapeutic benefits.
