Editorial Review 2015 – Nuclear Medicine, Diagnostic Imaging and Therapy

ABSTRACT

Journal of Diagnostic Imaging in Therapy (JDIT) is published online by Open Medscience, based in Northern Ireland, UK. The aim of this journal is to address the requirements of researchers – specialising in nuclear medicine, diagnostic imaging and therapy by providing open access to peer-reviewed articles. These high quality published articles are available in both HTML and PDF formats.  All published articles are assigned an unique CrossRef DOI number and the HTML version is given a CrossMark accreditation.

The published articles highlight the application of diagnostic imaging with radionuclides, X-rays, magnetic resonance (MR), ultrasound (US) etc. The scope of these imaging modalities include: positron emission tomography (PET), single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), hybrid imaging systems, radioguided surgery (RGS) and positron emission mammography (PEM). Also included are the application of short and long-lived radioisotopes in research alongside the development of imaging agents and related targeted therapies. In addition, JDIT’s scope will include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), ultrasound (US) imaging and planar X-ray (digital, analogue and portable) systems.

Articles published in 2015 have covered the topics on the application of nano-particles towards imaging and therapy, quantification of PET/CT images, the role of [18F]FDG positron emission tomography (PET) imaging for glucose transporter GLUT1, bifunctional metal – nitroimidazole complexes for hypoxia theranosis in cancer, 3-D image-based dosimetry using 90Y microsphere therapy, reirradiation of spinal metastases using micro multileaf collimator, nano-aptamer for breast cancer imaging and gallium-68 radiotracers for Alzheimer’s plaque imaging.

These published articles have all been peer-reviewed by the journals’ editorial board and/or external reviewers. Here, we would personally like to take this opportunity to thank everyone on the journals’ editorial board who has volunteered their time to review these articles.

In this editorial review, we have summarized all the abstracts from the 2015 issue.

Key words: nano-technology; radiotherapy; PET imaging; hypoxia imaging; dosimetry; cyberknife; tomotherapy; nano-aptamers; Alzheimer’s plaque imaging
