    Improvement of Nuclear Research Facilities in Kuwait



    Tobaposcom -- The former head of the nuclear medicine department at the Ministry of Health (MoH) Dr Saud Al-Enezi stressed the recent ministerial decision on establishing new medical imaging departments including nuclear medicine and diagnostic radiology is highly positive for the greater good. Enezi added that the same structure is followed at various international medical centers and hospitals and that it would facilitate the ideal use of financial, technical and human resources available in both sections.

    Earlier this week, the Kuwait society of nuclear medicine urged the Ministry of Health to cancel a previous decision to turn nuclear medicine departments into units under a new medical imaging department headed by a diagnostic radiologist, saying that the decision was made “without even discussing the issue with nuclear medicine doctors or justifying the decision.”

    “The decision was not well-studied and has negative impacts on nuclear medicine diagnosis and treatment quality,” the society argued in a press statement. It further explained that the equipment used for nuclear medicine are different from those used in diagnostic radiology departments and need special licenses to handle and prepare unsealed sources of radioactive materials.

    In other news, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) informed MoH about its approval to extend the suspension of the accreditation of certificates of doctors, pharmacists, nurses and other assistant medical staff for a year instead of six months. CSC also urged MoH to report back on accrediting those certificates within the one-year grace period.  (adm)
