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 key research articles on theranostics, nuclear medicine therapy, and imaging of cancer, neurological disease, cardiological disease, and other disease as well as continuing education articles and updates on rapidly changing issues in practice and research.
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 Rebecca Maxey, director of communications, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (703) 652-6772, 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.

PET imaging shows greater lung inflammation in e-cigarette users than in cigarette smokers, according to a new study published ahead of print in JNM.
A study published in the January JNM reports that approximately half of Medicare patients with NSCLC do not receive the appropriate imaging prior to radiation therapy. Significant improvement in survival rates was found in patients who had FDG PET/CT imaging—as recommended in NCCN guidelines—compared to those who underwent CT imaging alone.
A novel imaging agent, Ga-68 FAPI, can reduce the number of false-positive PET/CT findings among cancer patients recently vaccinated for COVID-19, helping prevent costly follow-up and false management decisions for cancer patients.
In men recently diagnosed with intermediate or high-grade prostate cancer, PSMA PET/MRI can successfully determine whether their cancer is likely to return within two years of a prostatectomy.
