Guidelines are supposed to outline scientific knowledge and the opinion of experts for examination and treatment methods in nuclear medicine.
Unlike the English term “Guidelines” the German shall differentiate between “Leitlinien” (guidelines) and “Richtlinien” (directive).Whilst guidelines are considered to be an aid for clinicians and do not necessarily have to be followed, directives have a legally binding effect and can be consulted in the case of non-compliance sanctions.
