Abstract

The concept of a middle level provider of nuclear medicine services, designated a nuclear medicine practitioner in this paper, is supported by two studies of technologists and physicians. It is anticipated that the nuclear medicine practitioner would have attributes parallel to those of a physicians assistant with roles and functions to be defined by advanced clinical competency beyond the technologist level. This new clinical role offers an opportunity for significant career advancement for technologists and would result in nuclear medicine services that are more cost effective and efficient.
