Special Issue Description

Nuclear medicine uses radioactive substances inside the body to diagnose illnesses or to target and remove diseased or damaged organs and tissue (for treatment). The functioning of the organs or tissues can be revealed via nuclear medicine. A tracer, which contains the radioactive substance, is typically injected, eaten, or inhaled during diagnostic procedures. To determine how much of the tracer is absorbed or how it reacts in the organ or tissue, the healthcare provider or radiologist (a medical expert with specialized training to use radiation in healthcare) employs a radiation detector. Nuclear medicine is a branch of radiology that examines the structure and function of organs using very small quantities of radioactive substances, called radiopharmaceuticals. Imaging in nuclear medicine combines several distinct fields of study. These include biology, physics, math, computer science, and chemistry. This area of radiography is frequently used to identify and treat anomalies that first appear relatively early in the course of a disease, like thyroid cancer. The two most popular imaging modalities in nuclear medicine are single photon emission computed tomography, or SPECT, and positron emission tomography, or PET scans. Nuclear medicine is frequently used to diagnose conditions using: Heart, lung, kidney, gallbladder, and thyroid imaging: In positron emission tomography (PET), a sort of nuclear medicine, the tracer is utilized to demonstrate the normal activity of cells, giving more in-depth information on how organs are functioning and whether there is damage to the cells. PET scans are frequently paired with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scans to produce three-dimensional pictures of the organ.

Manuscript Submission information

Manuscripts should be submitted online via the manuscript Engine. Once you register on APID, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline.
All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the email address:[email protected] for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a Double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for the submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
