dc.description.abstractENGLISH ABSTRACT: Why should an issue of CME, a publication primarily directed at generalists, be devoted to nuclear medicine? I am reminded from time to time of how unfamiliar many of my colleagues are with this specialty, which is not surprising given the minimal coverage the field receives in already full undergraduate medical school programmes – even specialty-specific postgraduate exposure is often limited. Consequently, there is a paucity of knowledge of the role, indications, availability, and cost of many nuclear medicine procedures in the wider clinical community. Optimal nuclear medicine is heavily reliant on close collaboration with referring clinicians. Two prerequisites for a clear, useful report is a clear definition of the clinical question and the study being appropriate to answer that question. It is primarily the responsibility of nuclear medicine physicians to advise colleagues on what studies can do and, sometimes more importantly, cannot do.en_ZA
