Call for Papers: Imaging and dosimetry for radionuclide based therapy

EJNMMI Physics welcomes submissions on Imaging and dosimetry for radionuclide based therapy. Radionuclide therapy and molecular radiotherapy are established modalities for treatment of certain cancer types. In recent years there has been a significant expansion of new therapy options, radiopharmaceuticals and applications. Dosimetry is an essential component in the treatment chain to maximize the delivered absorbed dose to cancerous tissue while minimizing the dose to healthy organs. To highlight the rapid changes in this field and to address the remaining challenges, EJNMMI Physics is planning an article collection on this topic in 2017. For collection we invite contributions on different aspects of imaging and dosimetry of radionuclides for therapeutic use. This collection will describe recent advances in the field and the manuscripts can be state-of-the-art review papers or original research papers. These papers can have multi-disciplinary approach but the primary focus should be on medical physics or engineering related aspects.
Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have carefully read the submission guidelines for EJNMMI Physics. The complete manuscript should be submitted through the EJNMMI Physics submission system. To ensure that you submit to the correct thematic series please select the appropriate thematic series in the dropdown menu upon submission. In addition, indicate within your cover letter that you wish your manuscript to be considered as part of the thematic series on Imaging and dosimetry for radionuclide based therapy. All submissions will undergo rigorous peer review and accepted articles will be published within the journal as a collection. 

Deadline for submissions: 31 October, 2017
