The Department of Nuclear Sciences and Applications implements the IAEA's Major Programme 2, "Nuclear Techniques for Development and Environmental Protection".
This Major Programme comprises individual programmes on food and agriculture, human health, water resources, environment and radiation technologies.
These programmes are supported by laboratories in Seibersdorf, Monaco and Vienna. The Major Programme's objective is to enhance the capacity of Member States to meet basic human needs and to assess and manage the marine and terrestrial environments through the use of nuclear and isotopic techniques in sustainable development programmes.
The Division of Human Health is organized into four Sections whose objectives are to enhance the capabilities of Member States to address needs related to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of health problems through the development and application of nuclear techniques within a framework of quality assurance.
The Nuclear Medicine and Diagnostic Imaging Section's primary objective is to enhance Member States' capabilities to use nuclear medicine and other imaging technologies efficiently, mainly, but not limited to cancer and cardiac diseases, and for undertaking related basic and clinical research.
To achieve those goals, special attention is given to the preparation of educational resources, guidelines and guidance documents.
Reporting to the Section Head, the Radiologist (Imaging) provides technical and advisory services including cancer-related services.
He / she collects, analyses and disseminates information related to the application of radiological techniques in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and in basic and applied research in the field of human health with a view to meeting development goals related to the provision of health services, and coordinates and supports research.
3) a research coordinator, providing high level expertise and advice to researchers and coordinated research project organizers in support of the efficient and effective development and implementation of research and training.
