Medical imaging is crucial in a variety of medical settings and at all levels of health care. In public health and preventive medicine as well as in both curative and palliative care, effective decisions depend on correct diagnoses. This edition addresses the most current needs and offers guidance on clinical practice, radiation safety and patient protection, human resource development and training required for the overall practice of nuclear medicine.
Highly ranked among journals in its field, the European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging provides a forum for the exchange of clinical and scientific information for the nuclear medicine community and allied professions involved in the functional, metabolic and molecular investigation of disease.The journal remains of primary interest to practitioners in the field of nuclear medicine but also reports on original work relating to physics, dosimetry, radiation biology, radiochemistry and pharmacy. Original material examines the field of molecular imaging probes, reporter gene assays, cell trafficking, targeting of endogenous gene expression and antisense methodologies. The Journal publishes in-depth reviews of topical interest, short communications, controversies, interesting images and letters to the Editor.

18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET/CT imaging has become a key modality for imaging patients with cancer . The process of reviewing PET/CT studies involves integration of the metabolic findings from the FDG component combined with the anatomical information provided by the CT component. This is a modality with many patterns of structural, physiologic and biochemical abnormalities that transcend the boundaries previously isolated in the worlds of nuclear medicine or radiology in characterising pathological conditions, particularly including cancer. Whilst there is a wealth of literature addressing the utility of PET in a large array of malignancies, the art of how to review and interpret PET/CT is generally acquired like an apprentice and not well addressed in the literature. In this article, we detail our approach to reviewing a PET/CT study using the most commonly used tracer, FDG. Future articles in this series will address the use of other tracers pertinent to other cancers. 2ff7e9595c
