ABSTRACT
Radionuclide radiology faces a potentially crippling future manpower shortage. A combination of future retirement, few trainees and many currently unfilled posts threatens to limit future service delivery. The case is made for in-house modular training of existing consultants as the way forward for radionuclide radiology, allowing limited ARSAC licence acquisition. We propose this as a viable solution to the manpower problem in radionuclide radiology.
