Today I added "Nuclear Medicine Physicians" to the Wikipedia Category:Medical doctors by specialty. This marks the very first time that the specialty is recognized in this important section of Wikipedia. Prior to today, the specialty of radiology was recognized, but it was amazing to find that the specialty of nuclear medicine was not. Molecular imaging is an important specialty that has resulted from decades long work and research coming from the specialty of nuclear medicine. Now they people devoting their professional careers to the field will be fully recognized on Wikipedia.
