On November 3rd, the President of the Medicine Faculty of King Abdulaziz University of Jeddah, Mahmoud Shaheen Al-Ahwal, together with the general and administrative directors, Mohammed Najeeb G. Khayat and Ali Amjad, visited the new nuclear medicine department of “Ospedali Riuniti” in Foggia to see and study the technical solutions adopted there, in order to create a similar department in the most important University of Saudi Arabia.
