The new tutorials, listed below, increase the number of Therapy credits available and, if you appreciate a mathematical challenge, several of them are perfect for you! The clinically related topics focus heavily on the Radiopharmacy aspects involved in the procedures listed.

These tutorials have also been approved for Nuclear Medicine Technologists by the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging and are listed on the CE Resources list of the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC).
