Theranostics: A Unique Concept to Nuclear Medicine

Editorial

Nuclear Medicine is an integral part of modern healthcare. The use of radioactive nuclides tagged biomolecules, evaluating their distribution in human bodies by SPECT or PET systems, provides longitudinal sets of volumetric and quantitative images that can be used to diagnose a wide range of disease and/or assess response to disease specific treatments [1].

Nuclear Medicine therapy, also before known as radio-metabolic, consists in replacing cited diagnostic nuclides with alternative radionuclides that emit a “curative” type of radiations such as beta- or alpha-particles [2].

The eventual presence of a contemporary gamma emission by the nuclide utilized also allows the execution of scintigraphic investigations after its administration, useful for monitoring the distribution of the radio-pharmaceutical in the body and make the most of the time a predictive estimation of the dose received from the target compared to the administered activity [3].
