TitleNuclear Medicine and Diagnostic Radiology
Administrative historyThe Radioisotope Department was formed in 1961, with the opening of the Queen Elizabeth II block, from the original radiation physics department, to undertake imaging investigations. In 1976 the department was renamed the Department of Nuclear Medicine, with studies and imaging investigations extending to more complex nuclear cardiology and renal tests, whole body bone-scanning, and single-photon emission tomography.
The department was one of the first to start clinical work in the field of labelled monoclonal antibody studies in cancer, with the support of the Imperial Cancer Research Fund.
The Nuclear Medicine department became one of the Departments of Diagnostic Radiology within the City Unit of the City and Hackney Health Authority.
