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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
SNMMI and the American College of Radiology announce a new collaborative clinical data registry to support high-quality practice and patient care. The registry will allow collection and analysis of data on nuclear medicine procedures, supporting continuous improvement of patient care.
Recently, there has been a report of high-level radiation exposure with use of incorrect eluent in Rubidium 82 Rb82 generators after a failure to follow the eluate testing protocol. ASNC and SNMMI members are reminded to use only additive-free, 0.9 % Sodium Chloride Injection, USP (normal saline) to elute the Rubidium 82 Rb82 generator.

Researchers have discovered a way to better predict progression of Alzheimer’s disease. A study utilizing positron emission tomography to image microglial activation levels showed that these levels could predict current and future cognitive performance better than beta-amyloid levels. The research is published in the April issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.
The first human case studies from the first total-body PET/CT scanner show enhanced image quality, reduced scan time, a longer time window to perform the scan, reduced dose and total-body dynamic imaging, among other benefits and possibilities. The research is published in the March issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.
SNMMI monitors multiple federal legislative issues and provides resources including issue summaries, letters to Congress, and analysis. Most of this information is in the government relations news section of this web site.
