Your health is important to SCK•CEN as demonstrated, for example, by the fact that we supply radioisotopes necessary for highly selective cancer fighting treatment. We analyse the health impact of medical imaging and conduct research into the protection of humans from ionising radiation.

Radioactive substances have become an indispensable part of modern medical care,  a discipline referred to as nuclear medicine. Within SCK•CEN medical research projects are becoming increasingly significant. A large part of our resources are concentrated on reducing the radiation doses incurred by patients and medical personnel, without affecting the health benefits.
