The world is full of scientists, medical professionals and engineers who have made tremendous contributions to making the world a lot better AND explaining it to the public in an interesting way. Alan Waltar is one such person. Please take time to read each of the slides in this presentation. There is a lot we can learn.

Mediclinic, City Hospital Dubai, UAE - NM is a type of medical imaging that provides detailed pictures of what is happening inside the body at a molecular and cellular level. Where other diagnostic imaging procedures such as x-rays,computed tomography (CT) and ultrasound predominantly offer anatomical pictures, NM imaging allows physicians to see how the body is functioning and to measure its chemical and biological processes.

Mazin Al Janabi -Nuclear Medicine is a medical speciality that uses the nuclear properties of radioactive elements in the diagnosis or therapy of diseases. The most visible component of this is in the use of gamma-ray emitting radioisotopes to produce images. There is also extensive use of in vitro diagnostic tests, and use of elements decaying with beta radiation producing higher radiation doses as therapeutic agents.

As we reflect back over the day, we are no less than astounded by the degree to which radiation processes have already been harnessed to enrich our life. Recognizing this enormous progress, we can only dream in wonderment over what the future of radiation technology may hold for us and our children. See this article and more at: www.NuclearConnect.org
