Introduction: Currently, most of continents and countries have its own radiological societies which help to share and update clinical experience and scientific knowledge to make the outcome of routine work become efficacious. Although Vietnam was affected adversely due to war, it also developed fundamentally in radiological field. So as to interact better among radiological societies, we believe that the history and current condition of Vietnamese radiology should be introduced. Aim: Thus, in this paper, we aimed to describe the past, current, and future of Vietnamese Society of Radiology and Nuclear medicine. Methods: We collected the information about Vietnamese Society of Radiology and Nuclear medicine via internet source and publications. Results: Radiological society was established in 1961. Although the society developed successfully during 59 years, there are still some problematic conditions such as gender disparity, insufficiency of human resource and modern modalities. Conclusion: With the appearance of Vietnamese society of radiology and nuclear medicine, many doctors and technicians are close together, and Vietnam has an effective chance for radiology to intergrate into actively global radiological field.
