Inaugural Editorial Review – Nuclear Medicine, Diagnostic Imaging and Therapy


Journal of Diagnostic Imaging in Therapy (JDIT) is published online by Open Medscience, based in Northern Ireland, UK. The aim of this new journal is to address the requirements of researchers – specialising in Nuclear and Medical Sciences – by providing open access to peer-reviewed articles. These high quality published articles on Nuclear and Medical sciences are available in both HTML and PDF formats. The published articles are to 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.

Since the conception of JDIT in the latter part of 2014, we have had the pleasure to receive a variety of research articles, reviews, commentaries, perspectives and case reports ranging from topics on the use of PET imaging, automated radiosynthesis, 18F-FES-PET/CT imaging of breast cancer, prostate cancer therapy and imaging, PET/CT imaging of neuroendocrine tumours using 68Ga-somatostatin analogues, targeted radionuclide therapy, transcranial sonography applications for movement disorders, the application of 18F-fluoride as a marker of unstable atheroma and the use of radionuclides in diagnostic imaging and therapy. 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 2014 inaugural issue.

Keywords: PET imaging; automated radiosynthesis; 18F-FES-PET-CT imaging; prostate cancer therapy; tumour imaging; targeted radionuclide therapy; ultrasound imaging; atheroma PET imaging; molecular imaging
