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 clinical investigations, basic science reports, continuing education articles, book reviews, employment opportunities, 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.

SNMMI 2019 Annual Meeting
June 22-25, Anaheim, California
Stay tuned for more information.
Researchers report that a new nuclear medicine tracer may allow better diagnosis of acute venous thromboembolism (VTE). Acute VTE is a disease that includes deep-vein thrombosis and its complication, pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal. The research is featured in the February issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.
Physicians may soon have a new way to measure the efficacy of hormone therapy for breast cancer patients, according to research published in the February issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.
Adding functional imaging to structural imaging of patients with ventricular tachycardia (VT) has the potential to improve current VT ablation strategies, according to new research published in the January 2019 issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.
SNMMI together with representatives from ACNM provided feedback to the NRC on the training and experience requirements for those who wish to be authorized users of unsealed byproduct material.
