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

SASNM was established in 1984 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 that have an interest and competence in the diagnostic, therapeutic, production, academic and promotion of radionuclides.

Control of the affairs of the Society are vested in a Council and Executive Committee whose members hold office until their successors are elected.
