- Contacting Legislators Paying Off -
Senate Work Needed
- President Bush's FY06 budget
drastically cut DOE funding for molecular imaging and nuclear
medicine programs. Nuclear Medicine professionals sent
thousands of emails to their legislators and the House
Appropriations Committee has heard the nuclear medicine
community loud and clear, and has included $35 million for the
Medical Applications and Measurement Science Program in their
appropriations language. Now, we must turn our focus to the
Senate side of Capitol Hill before the Senate Appropriations
Committee finalizes their DOE appropriations. Please
contact your senator now. The
SNM online legislative action center makes this an easy
- Offshore Teleradiology Stirs
- Rep. Markey and Senator Clinton
have introduced the legislation "Safeguarding Americans from
Exporting Identification Data" (Safe ID) that would require

Scatter is an important concept in
nuclear medicine physics. It is an
interaction in which an incident gamma
photon loses enough energy to an orbital
electron to cause its ejection, with the
remainder of the original photon's energy
being emitted as a new, lower energy gamma
photon with an emission direction different
from that of the incident gamma photon.
Arthur Compton discovered this effect and
was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics for
his work in 1927.
