Dear colleague,

The current COVID-19 crisis also has an impact on the care of nuclear medicine patients and the operation of nuclear medicine practices and clinics. These effects appear to be different due to the geographical location and structural conditions.

Together with the IAEA we would like to record the current effects, evaluate them and make them available to the members. The higher the participation rate, the more meaningful we get to third parties, such as administrations, health officials, etc. Therefore, we would like to ask you to take 5 minutes to answer this online questionnaire.

We thank you for your support.

With best regards!

Lutz Freudenberg and Ken Herrmann
