  1. Letter from the guest Editor: update in Cardiovascular Nuclear Medicine (Part II).

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(5):332 (2014) PMID 25234077

  2. Noninvasive imaging in coronary artery disease.

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 44(5):398 (2014) PMID 25234083 PMCID PMC4191722

    Noninvasive cardiac imaging is widely used to evaluate the presence of coronary artery disease. Recently, with improvements in imaging technology, noninvasive imaging has also been used for evaluation of the presence, severity, and prognosis of coronary artery disease. Coronary CT angiography and MR...
  3. 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 at the right t...
  4. Musculoskeletal imaging using fluoride PET.

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 43(6):427 (2013) PMID 24094710

    The convenience of (18)F-fluoride imaging is undeniable both because of its favorable tracer and because of its technical characteristics, including high image quality and short examination times leading to increased patient comfort. Depending on the activity administered, the radiation dose to pati...
  5. Letter from the editors.

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 43(4):267 (2013) PMID 23725987

  6. Positron emission tomography in renal cell carcinoma: an imaging biomarker in development.

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 42(4):221 (2012) PMID 22681671

    We will start with a brief overview of the demographics, molecular pathogenesis, and evolving treatment strategies in RCC because this information is essential for better understanding of uptake of various PET radiotracers in this cancer and their indications. This will be followed by discussing the...
  7. Decreased sensitivity of (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose imaging in infection and inflammation.

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 42(4):261 (2012) PMID 22681675

    Nuclear medicine plays an important role in the evaluation of inflammation and infection. Although (99m)Tc-methylene diphosphonate, (67)Ga-citrate, and in vitro labeled autologous leukocyte imaging are useful procedures, there are limitations to each of them. (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron-emissi...
  8. Concepts, consequences, and implications of theranosis.

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 42(3):147 (2012) PMID 22475423

    Although the term has been coined recently, the concepts underlying theranosis have been applied in patient care for more than one-half century. However, advanced technologies are used now. Theranosis describes processes used to tailor therapy for a patient. It is the use of diagnostic tests to iden...
  9. In Memoriam: Alexander Gottschalk, MD (1932-2010)

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 41(2):2 (2011) PMID 21272680

  10. Design of Clinical Trials

    Seminars in Nuclear Medicine 40(5):6 (2010) PMID 20674592

    Clinical trial design for nuclear medicine diagnostic imaging radiopharmaceuticals must include a design for preclinical safety studies. These studies should establish that the investigational product (IP) does not have a toxic effect. As a further requirement, radiopharmaceutical cl...
