The editorial team of Diagnostics is setting up a Special Issue on PET in early response evaluation in cancer management.
This Special Issue will cover advances in PET methodology, with special consideration of its application in the field of early response in chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Submissions will be invited covering the clinical role of PET tracers, such as FDG and FLT, in the follow-up of oncologic malignancies.
This publication will especially address early response in the therapy monitoring of new pharmaceuticals and biologicals.
In addition, new radiopharmaceuticals will be discussed for their potential in this section of clinical oncology.
