Welcome to the Korea Institute of Nuclear Medicine – Your Premier Destination for Cutting-Edge Healthcare! Established in 1963 as the Institute of Radiation Medicine, our journey has been one of relentless dedication to advancing science, technology, and public health through groundbreaking research in the medical application of radiation. As we walk you through our remarkable story, you'll discover how we've evolved into a beacon of hope for patients seeking top-tier healthcare solutions. Back in 1963, we introduced the revolutionary Cobalt-60 radiation cancer treatment device, a milestone that significantly elevated cancer cure rates in Korea. Our commitment to precision didn't stop there; we continued to enhance cancer diagnosis accuracy. Moreover, our domestic expertise led to the development of a cutting-edge medical cyclotron, a cornerstone for transformative cancer research endeavors. Our mission: early cancer diagnosis and treatment through the power of radioactive isotopes. In 1973, we transformed into a nuclear power hospital, ushering in an era of science-based diagnosis and treatment for cancer, a legacy that endured into the 1990s. We took a giant leap by establishing an emergency medical center, a critical national asset for responding to radioactive disasters. This bold step set us apart from other medical institutions and elevated our standing in the healthcare sector. For over 50 years, we've been at the forefront of cancer treatment in Korea, bridging the gap between cutting-edge science and medical practice. Today, we stand poised to become a medical powerhouse, not only in our relentless fight against cancer but also as a solution-driven public organization addressing the evolving needs of our nation and society. We're not content with our past achievements; we're stepping boldly into the future. By fostering research-oriented specialized hospitals, we're leading the charge in cutting-edge biomedical R&D. We're also strengthening our life radiation research and diagnostic capabilities to address pressing societal issues. Additionally, we're establishing a national RI new drug center to promote the dissemination and utilization of domestic medical radioactive isotopes. At the Korea Institute of Nuclear Medicine, we're dedicated to becoming a trusted institution, deeply rooted in the hearts of our patients. With over half a century of experience in radiation medicine treatment and research, we're forging ahead, blazing a trail towards a healthier future.
