The story of Hygieia
Introduced in 2018
First used by the Nuclear Medicine Europe Innovation Working Group, the success of the visual prompted the Awareness Working Group to produce a version for the general public.
Hygieia is a goddess of health cleanliness and hygiene from Greek and Roman mythology. We introduced the Hygieia visual at the EANM Congress in Vienna in 2018, the city where Gustav Klimt painted a ceiling representing the goddess of health.
Real questions - real answers!
These are some of the real questions that nuclear medicine physicians and technicians are asked by patients.
We hope the answers will ease your concerns regarding these safe diagnostic procedures.
