Variations in the practice of molecular radiotherapy and implementation of dosimetry: results from a European survey
Winner of the journal’s Best Paper Award 2018
The study assesses the current practice of molecular radiotherapy (MRT) and dosimetry across European countries via an electronic questionnaire. Analysis of 42,853 treatments demonstrates a wide variation in MRT practice across Europe and for different therapies.
Congratulations to the authors: Katarina Sjögreen Gleisner, Emiliano Spezi, Pavel Solny, Pablo Minguez Gabina, Francesco Cicone, Caroline Stokke, Carlo Chiesa, Maria Paphiti, Boudewijn Brans, Mattias Sandström, Jill Tipping, Mark Konijnenberg and Glenn Flux!
The award was presented at the EANM Congress 2018.

EANM Sponsorship Programme
The EANM Board decided to allocate funds to a dedicated Publication Fee Sponsorship Programme for the selected journals in the EJNMMI journal family. Through this programme, the EANM will cover the charges that arise for publications in the open access journals EJNMMI Physics, EJNMMI Radiopharmacy and Chemistry and the European Journal of Hybrid Imaging. Find out more here.

We offer a free open access support service to make it easier for you to discover and apply for article-processing charge (APC) funding. Learn more here.
Aims and scope
EJNMMI Physics is an international platform for scientists, users and adopters of nuclear medicine with a particular interest in physics matters. As a companion journal to the European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, this journal has a multi-disciplinary approach and welcomes original materials and studies with a focus on applied physics and mathematics as well as imaging systems engineering and prototyping in nuclear medicine. This includes physics-driven approaches or algorithms supported by physics that foster early clinical adoption of nuclear medicine imaging and therapy.
EJNMMI Physics publishes original research articles, reviews, case reports, commentaries, and short communications, as well as article types with unique submission criteria, Young Investigator Articles and Teaching Files.
Young Investigator Articles: This category is reserved for young scientists in the course of their MSc or PhD studies who wish to present part of their undergraduate and graduate research in a scientific framework. Manuscripts should follow the structure of an original research submission, however, the content may be comprised of several sub-projects. Typically, young investigator reports entail a scientifically sound summary report of a short-term project or a PhD thesis.
Teaching Files: This category is reserved for manuscripts that aim at educating the readership on an important or common application of physics in nuclear medicine imaging and therapy. To introduce, explain, detail and summarise an observation, process, workflow related to the physics of nuclear medicine or hybrid imaging. The same trail of educational thoughts may be applicable to methodologies and applications of physics in nuclear medicine, e.g. image-guided dosimetry.

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 publishing an article collection on this topic.
