Journal of Diagnostic Imaging in Therapy

Journal of Diagnostic Imaging in Therapy

 JDIT Medical Journals UK 

JDIT is published online by Open Medscience, based in Northern Ireland, UK  addressing the needs of researchers who specialise in nuclear medicine and medical imaging sciences by providing open access to peer-reviewed articles.

JDIT publishes clear and concise articles, including thematic issues, on the topics of Nuclear Medicine, Diagnostic Imaging and Therapy.  These topics relate to the application of radionuclides, X-rays and ultrasound. Other imaging modalities include hybrids of positron emission tomography (PET), computed tomography (CT) and/or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Feature Articles

  • In previous years FDG-PET/CT has acquired a significant role in radiotherapy treatment of head and neck (H&N) disease. This study focuses on the added value of PET/CT with respect to conventional CT in terms of target delineation and dosimetric implications. ARTICLE

  • The movement of physiologic nucleosides and nucleoside analogue drugs across biological membranes is mediated by nucleoside transport proteins.  In cancer, nucleoside transporters have an important role in maintaining the hyperproliferative state of tumours and are important targets for diagnostic and therapeutic agents in the detection, treatment and monitoring of cancers.

  • Yttrium-90 radioembolization (90Y-RE) is a well-established therapy for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and also of metastatic liver deposits from other malignancies. Nuclear Medicine and Cath Lab diagnostic imaging takes a pivotal role in the success of the treatment, and in order to fully exploit the efficacy of the technique and provide reliable quantitative dosimetry that are related to clinical endpoints in the era of personalized medicine, technical challenges in imaging need to be overcome.
