Nuclear pharmacy is a patient-oriented service that embodies the scientific knowledge and professional judgement required to improve and promote health through assurance of the safe and efficacious use of radioactive drugs for diagnosis and therapy. In most cases nuclear pharmacists do not hold a special license to practice. After meeting the training and experience requirements, a pharmacist must be listed as an "authorized user" of radioactive materials on the pharmacy or hospital's radioactive materials license.
