The nuclear medicine technologist (NMT) is a highly-skilled person who, under the direction of a qualified physician, prepares and administers radiopharmaceuticals, performs in-vitro assays, calibrates and operates instruments for detection of radiation, processes and prepares organ images, and maintains laboratory safety and quality control.
A solid background in physiology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics is required for the NMT before undertaking the year of specialized clinical training and internship at a training hospital. This background is provided in depth by three academic years of preparatory studies at Edinboro University.
The duties of a nuclear medicine technologist may be performed by anyone who has completed the clinical year of specialized training and has attained accredited NMT certification.
