The advancing development of personalized therapeutic concepts in the oncological context benefits from image-based precision medicine, where PET/CT and PET/MRI have proven to be valuable techniques for the early detection and precise localization of tumor lesions, accurate determination of tumor stage, and monitoring treatment response. The complexity of hybrid imaging necessitates a detailed investigation of its information content, taking into account technical limitations and the clinical-prognostic relevance in diagnostic routine for each specific question and entity. The often multifaceted clinical questions, large volume of image data, complex data structure, and required technical expertise contribute to the complexity of hybrid imaging. With the ongoing development of individualized molecular therapy concepts, hybrid imaging has been gaining increasing diagnostic and clinical importance, as it provides the highest possible imaging information content compared to other radiological and nuclear medicine modalities. In addition, the exploration of various radiopharmaceutical agents has opened up novel possibilities for the in vivo molecular characterization of cancer.
This Special Issue, entitled "State of the Art on PET/CT and PET/MRI in Oncology", aims to highlight the role of hybrid imaging in cancer management, such as individualized diagnosis and therapeutic biomarker drug assessment, to provide clinicians with information to assist in the development of optimal treatment options for cancer. Therefore, we encourage researchers (clinicians and scientists) in the field to submit original articles and reviews to this Special Issue of the Journal of Personalized Medicine.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, 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 Editorial Office 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 single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Personalized Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
