WMIS, ACR and SNMMI Urge CMS to Reopen Reconsideration for NaF PET

Medicare patients with metastatic cancers may be negatively impacted by the recent decision of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to decline to provide coverage for 18F-sodium fluoride positron emission tomography (NaF PET) imaging.

New Nuclear Medicine Method Could Better Detect Neuroendocrine Tumors

Researchers have shown that a new nuclear medicine procedure could safely and more effectively detect cancerous gastrointestinal and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors than current methods. The study is featured in the June issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.

Novel PET Imaging Pinpoints Colitis Inflammation Sites

A novel PET imaging method shows promise for noninvasively pinpointing sites of inflammation in people with inflammatory bowel disease, which includes ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. The UCLA study is featured in the June issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.
