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

  • 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

Forthcoming Articles

  • 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.
