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).
- Target volume definition and dosimetric issues in radiotherapy treatment of head and neck disease with FDG-PET/CT: A monocentric experience. 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.
- Nucleoside transporters in PET imaging of proliferating cancer cells using 3ꞌ-deoxy-3ꞌ-[18F]fluoro-L-thymidine. 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.
- A review of 3D image-based dosimetry, technical considerations and emerging perspectives in 90Y microsphere therapy. 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.PubMed
- Can serial FCH PET/CT scans predict the response to treatments in castrate resistant prostate cancer? To evaluate the utility of serial 18F-choline (FCH) PET/CT scans to monitor the response to chemotherapy in patients (pts) with metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPCa).
- Open letter to journal editors on: International Consensus Radiochemistry Nomenclature Guidelines. After observing an increased incidence of imprecise and sometimes erroneous use of nuclear chemistry, radiochemistry and radiopharmacy related terms and nomenclature in scientific reports, an international working group of experts were assembled to address the issue.
