With the vision to render specialized medical services to the people using nuclear technology, the National Institute of Nuclear Medicine & Allied Sciences (NINMAS) was first established in 1980 with a small extent in block-A of the former Institute of Post Graduate Medicine & Research (IPGMR).It is now situated in the newly constructed 18-storied Block- D of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (former IPGMR) with about 60,000 sft floor space comprising four levels (7th-10th floor). With the modern state of art single and dual head SPECT cameras, the institute is now capable of performing most modern scanning on oncology, cardiology, nephrology and cerebral studies. Keeping with ever increasing importance of Positron Emission Tomography (PET), institute has project to establish a PET center. This gives a new dimension to the endeavor to represent the institute as a “Centre of Excellence” in the field of nuclear medicine services in Bangladesh.
For the next ten to fifteen years tremendous development is expected in the field of nuclear medicine therapy and targeted radionuclide therapy, radiopharmacy, PET radiopharmaceuticals, nuclear oncology, pediatric nuclear medicine, nuclear nephrology, nuclear cardiology To meet the future challenge in the field of nuclear medicine, our target is :
1. Expansion of diagnostic & therapeutic capability
2. Increase of academic & Research activities and
3. Development of the Human resource
