  1. Erratum to “Evaluation of Osseous Metastasis in Bone Scintigraphy”

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 45(3) (2015)

  2. Osteoporosis

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(6):439 (2014) PMID 25362234

    Osteoporotic fractures are common and result in extensive morbidity and mortality. It is possible to decrease the risk of fracture in postmenopausal, male, and glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis with appropriate screening and treatment. The assessment of fracture risk, for which bone ...
  3. Effect of AIDS on Women Who Have Sex-Determined Health Issues

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(6):489 (2014) PMID 25362238

    Worldwide, women account for a growing percentage of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)–infected patients and more than half of all HIV infections. For many years, morphologic imaging methods were the main approaches employed to investigate HIV and its complications. However, during th...
  4. The Role of Nuclear Cardiology in the Diagnosis and Risk Stratification of Women With Ischemic Heart Disease

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(6):423 (2014) PMID 25362233

    Ischemic heart disease (IHD) is the leading cause of death in women. Women present with coronary artery disease later in life than men, with greater number of risk factors and higher rate of angina. Women have higher mortality compared with age-matched men despite having less anatomica...

  7. Nuclear Medicine Imaging and Therapy: Gender Biases in Disease

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(6):413 (2014) PMID 25362232

    Gender-based medicine is medical research and care conducted with conscious consideration of the sex and gender differences of subjects and patients. This issue of Seminars is focused on diseases for which nuclear medicine is part of routine management and for which the diseases have s...
  8. Letter From the Editors

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(6):411 (2014) PMID 25362230

  9. Guest Editorial

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(6):412 (2014) PMID 25362231

  10. Gynecological Oncologic Imaging with PET/CT

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(6) (2014) PMID 25362236

    FDG-PET/CT has been evaluated in a variety of gynecologic malignancies in a variety of settings and is approved by CMS for the initial and subsequent treatment strategies of these malignancies. Cervical cancer is typically very FDG-avid and FDG-PET/CT appears to be most valuable for in...
  11. Radiation Dose Concerns for the Pregnant or Lactating Patient

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(6):479 (2014) PMID 25362237

    This article discusses issues regarding administration of radiopharmaceuticals to pregnant women or nursing mothers. Uncertainties in calculated dose estimates and possible biological effects on the unborn child are presented. Models and dose estimates for pregnant women at several sta...

  13. Radiation Risk in Nuclear Medicine

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(3):187 (2014) PMID 24832583

    Given the central roles that anatomical and functional imaging now play in medical practice, there have been concerns about the increasing levels of radiation exposure and their potential hazards. Despite incomplete quantitative knowledge of the risks, it is prudent to think of radiati...
  14. Dose Optimization in Nuclear Medicine

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(3):193 (2014) PMID 24832584

    The practice of diagnostic nuclear medicine involves the use of ionizing radiation, and thus the potential risk associated with such exposure must be weighed against the benefits to the patient. This requires that the right test with the right dose be administered to the right patient ...
  15. Quantitative Benefit-Risk Analysis of Medical Radiation Exposures

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(3):210 (2014) PMID 24832586

    While it is commonly said that the benefits of the use of radiation in the healing arts far outweigh any potential risks, there has not been to date an attempt to quantify the numerical benefits of uses of medical radiation. Using the 'Linear, No-Threshold' (LNT) model of radiation car...
  16. Letter from the Editors

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(3):159 (2014) PMID 24832578

  17. Guest Editorial

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(3):160 (2014) PMID 24832579

  18. Advances in Radiation Biology: Effect on Nuclear Medicine

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(3):179 (2014)

    Over the past 15 years and more, extensive research has been conducted on the responses of biological systems to radiation delivered at a low dose or low dose rate. This research has demonstrated that the molecular-, cellular-, and tissue-level responses are different following low dos...
  19. Radiation Protection and Regulations for the Nuclear Medicine Physician

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(3):215 (2014)

    As authorized users of radioactive material, nuclear medicine (NM) physicians play a leading role in the use and management of these agents. Regarding patient management, NM physicians are responsible for ensuring both the appropriateness of exams and the associated patient doses. Alon...
  20. Pediatric Nuclear Medicine and Radiation Dose

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(3):202 (2014) PMID 24832585

    Nuclear medicine is a unique and valuable method that contributes to the diagnosis and assessment of many diseases in children. Radiation exposures in children undergoing diagnostic nuclear medicine studies are low. Although in the past there has been a rather large variation of pediat...
