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. 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 Rebecca Maxey, director of communications, at email@example.com 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.

Editorial—Unacceptable denials of PSMA-Targeted PET/CT imaging … COVID-19 and the brain … Standard of care—Alzheimer disease … Radiotracers in cardiovascular imaging … Women authors in nuclear medicine journals … Featured: C-11-PiB PET in AL cardiac amyloidosis … Pretargeting and trastuzumab combination … and more.
The Journal of Nuclear Medicine has again achieved the highest impact factor in its history, ranking fourth among all medical imaging journals worldwide, according to new data just released in Clarivate's 2021 Journal Citation Reports.
SNMMI and ASNC requested that Aetna reverse its non-coverage cardiac PET/CT policy. We are thrilled to communicate that within a few days of receiving our letter, Aetna reversed the policy. Also, Aetna recently updated and published their coverage policy for PSMA imaging for PLUVICTO therapy eligibility.
