SNMMI is dedicated to being the premier source of information on nuclear medicine and molecular imaging. SNMMI's online newsroom provides reporters with the information needed to write articles and gain background information on the many topics related to molecular imaging and therapy and nuclear medicine.
SNMMI issues press releases on new research, society updates and industry news for members of the press. Check back frequently to see what's new with SNMMI.

Nuclear and molecular imaging are vital elements of today's medical practice, adding an additional dimension to diagnosis that can change the way diseases are understood and treated. Nuclear medicine therapies treat specific diseases, such as lymphoma or thyroid cancer, by allowing a high dose of medicine to be delivered directly to a tumor or problem area. SNMMI's fact sheets explain how nuclear medicine and molecular imaging can help diagnose and/or treat a wide range of diseases.
SNMMI publishes two peer-reviewed medical journals—The Journal of Nuclear Medicine (JNM) and The Journal of Nuclear Medicine Technology (JNMT)—which feature the latest in molecular imaging research. JNM and JNMT are the most widely read peer-reviewed publications in molecular imaging, nuclear medicine and allied disciplines.
Every month, JNM brings readers around the globe clinical investigations, basic science reports, continuing education articles, book reviews, employment opportunities, and updates on rapidly changing issues in practice and research. JNM's Newsline offers in-depth reporting on news affecting every facet of the field—the latest scientific events, government decisions, industry developments, socio-economic trends, and a broad selection of reviews from the literature.
Published quarterly, JNMT focuses on technology, quality assurance, radiation safety, and the clinical applications of nuclear medicine. Each issue features continuing education articles written by leading educators in nuclear medicine technology as well as news and updates on practice, licensure, and credentialing for nuclear medicine technologists. Practitioners from across the imaging sciences turn to JNMT for peer-reviewed information related to daily clinical practice.
SNMMI can connect you with subject-matter experts on a variety of topics who are ready to respond to tight deadlines. Contact Laurie Callahan, SNMMI's acting associate director of public relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (703) 652-6773, to set up an interview with SNMMI's leadership or with one of its many experts on oncology, brain disease, heart disease, radiopharmaceuticals, reimbursement and more.

Dirk (Dik) J. Kwekkeboom, MD, PhD, professor of nuclear medicine at Erasmus Univeristy in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, passed away March 8, 2017. An SNMMI member since 1998, he was considered one of Europe’s foremost experts on peptide receptor radiotherapy and was a frequent international speaker on neuroendocrine tumor imaging and lutetium-177 octreotate therapy.
The featured clinical investigation article of the March 2017 issue of "The Journal of Nuclear Medicine" demonstrates that the PET radiotracer fluciclovine (fluorine-18; F-18) can help guide and monitor targeted treatment for recurrent prostate cancer, allowing for individualized, targeted therapy.
In the featured article of the March 2017 issue of "The Journal of Nuclear Medicine," researchers demonstrate that a new positron emission tomography (PET) radiotracer, gallium-68 (Ga-68)-pentixafor, can quickly and non-invasively identify life-threatening atherosclerotic plaques. The tracer binds to the CXCR4 receptor on inflammatory cells present in atherosclerotic plaques—making it possible to find and treat atherosclerosis early.
SNMMI submitted comments to the FDA on radiopharmaceutical compounding.
