The South African Society of Nuclear Medicine (SASNM) is a voluntary association governed by its constitution and bylaws.

SASNM was established in 1974 to provide a forum for collaboration between Physicians, Scientists, Radiographers and other professional persons with a common interest in the field of nuclear medicine.

Members promote the practice and development of nuclear medicine through the accumulation and dissemination of scientific and technical information.

Membership is open to all persons who have an interest in the production and promotion, and diagnostic and therapeutic, use of radionuclides.

Control of the affairs of the Society is vested in a Council and Executive Committee whose members hold office for a 2 year term until their successors are elected at the following biennial SASNM meeting.
