The Journal of Nuclear Medicine Impact Factor Increases

The Journal of Nuclear Medicine (JNM) is again ranked among the top medical imaging journals worldwide, according to the 2016 Journal Citation Reports© published by Thomson Reuters. JNM’s impact factor went up from 5.849 to 6.646. Among nuclear medicine journals, JNM has the highest number of citations and citable articles, the highest average 5-year impact factor, and the highest influence score.

SNMMI 2017 Image of the Year Announced

The 2017 Image of the Year goes to a team of researchers from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and University Hospital in Heidelberg. The image clearly demonstrates how combining the advantages of Ga-68-PSMA PET and intraoperative gamma and fluorescence imaging of prostate cancer results in better tumor identification before and during surgery.

  • June 14, 2017 — SNMMI Image of the Year: PET and Optical Imaging of Dual-Labeled PSMA Inhibitors Shows Promise for Prostate Cancer Diagnosis and Therapy
    In the battle against metastatic prostate cancer, the removal of lymph node metastases using image-guided surgery may have a high clinical impact on outcomes. Researchers at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) demonstrated preclinically that dual-labeled PSMA-inhibitors based on PSMA-11 enhance preoperative staging, using PET/CT followed by fluorescence-guided surgery. The combined approach results in more accurate detection of PSMA-positive tumor lesions. (Press Releases)
  • June 14, 2017 — Prostate PET/CT Targets More Cancer and Improves Patient Care
    An estimated one in seven American men will be affected by prostate cancer in their lifetime. Prostate-specific molecular imaging gives these men a fighting chance, especially if their cancer returns, according to research revealed at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI).

  • June 14, 2017 — Dual-agent PET/MR With Time of Flight Detects More Cancer
    Simultaneous injections of the radiopharmaceuticals fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) and 18F-sodium fluoride (18F-NaF) followed by quantitative scanning significantly improves image quality and detection of bone metastases at a lower dose, according to research presented at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI).

  • June 13, 2017 — Immuno-PET Shows Promise for Detecting and Treating Pancreatic Tumors
    A first-in-human study presented at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) demonstrates the feasibility and safety of the novel human monoclonal antibody HuMab-5B1 with highly specific targeting for the cancer antigen (CA) 19-9, which is expressed on pancreatic tumors and a variety of other malignancies, including small cell lung cancer and tumors of the gastrointestinal system. It holds the promise of better identifying tumors and directing treatment. (Press Releases)
