Abstract

The future of hospital Nuclear Medicine is triggered by the hospital organisation itself. In general, the hospital organisation of the present requires substantial changes in order to be competitive, economical, and abreast of the rapid progresses in medical developments and patient management. It also must be flexible to changes in health politics. In this special report an organisational hospital structure is outlined which may help encounter the challenging hospital future. Some hospitals have already implemented convincing changes, whereas others are far behind.
