18F-FDG PET/CT: Current and Future Clinical Applications
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2024 | Viewed by 9892
Diagnostics is pleased to announce a Special Issue entitled “18F-FDG PET/CT: Current and Future Clinical Applications”, which will allow us to share the latest knowledge and future implications of 18F-FDG PET/CT. Imaging with 18F-FDG PET/CT has been used in clinical practice for several decades. With its unique ability to combine metabolic activity with anatomical correlation of CT, it can be analyzed qualitatively or quantitatively and helps clinical decision making in both adult and pediatric healthcare.
Innovations in standardization, quantification, diagnostic performance, and follow-up have been made over the past few years and is still ongoing due to extensive research effort from the scientific community within this field. Therefore, committed researchers focusing on metabolic imaging with 18F-FDG PET/CT are invited to contribute to this Special Issue. Potential topics include (but are not limited to) standardization, quality control, diagnostic performance, and future experimental developmental research. Clinical, preclinical, and phantom studies are welcome. Relevant case reports will also be warmly acknowledged. All investigations involving children are encouraged. Evidence-based medicine in children is generally one step behind of adults, due to ethical boundaries and logistics, among other restrictions. However, it is vital that diagnoses in children are accurate, preferably without involving too many different or invasive investigations.
In conclusion 18F-FDG PET/CT is a relatively new imaging modality with ongoing development and a broad spectrum of clinical indications. The 18F-FDG PET/CT technique has advanced due to global collaborations and scientific achievements, improving diagnosis at a global and individual level. This Special Issue “18F-FDG PET/CT: Current and Future Clinical Applications” aims to further this development.
