Introduction: Nuclear medicine is the branch of medicine that relies on radiation emitting substances, called radioisotopes or radionuclides, for the diagnosis or treatment of a disease or condition. The field of nuclear medical and biological research can be traced to the 1895 discovery by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen of a ray that could penetrate the human body and display bone structures. Soon thereafter, in 1896, Henri Becquerel demonstrated that uranium in its normal state gave off X-rays. Following these two path-breaking discoveries came the radioactivity discoveries by Marie Curie in 1897. Then, in 1925, Herrman Blumgart and Otto Yens used radioactive substances in human patients for the first time. In 1936, John H. Lawrence and Joseph Gilbert independently undertook the first therapeutic clinical applications of a radioactive substance to treat leukemia.
