Journal of Nuclear Medicine honors top articles for 2001

Reston, Virginia -- The Journal of Nuclear Medicine has selected a new PET tracer, and a cost saving basic research tool as the outstanding nuclear medicine research articles for 2001. According to JNM, the research reported in these articles represents cutting edge findings with the potential to significantly impact the field of nuclear medicine. Dr. Tom Miller, Chair of the SNM's Scientific Program Committee made the announcement during the recent Society of Nuclear Medicine 49th Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, California. Dr. Martin Sandler, Editor in Chief of the Journal of Nuclear Medicine, which has just been recognized as the leading nuclear medicine journal by ISI Journal Citation Reports, presented the awards.

Under clinical investigations, first prize was awarded to: Timothy R. DeGrado, Steve W. Baldwin, Shuyan Wang, Matthew D. Orr, Ray P. Liao, Henry S. Friedman, Robert Reiman, David T. Price, and R. Edward Coleman for their article "Synthesis and Evaluation of 18F-Labeled Choline Analogs as Oncologic PET Tracers," which appeared in the JNM in December 2001. J. Nucl.Med 2001 42:1805-1814. According to the JNM, the authors' success in the synthesis of 18F Choline is a significant advancement in the development of radiopharmaceuticals for clinical use. The current radiotracer, 18F FDG, while very useful in many situations, has substantial limitations in oncological imaging because of its inability to detect very small tumors, to visualize brain and intrapelvic tumors, and to differentiate between malignancies and chronic inflammation.

Second prize went to Tali Sharir, Guideo German, Xingping Kang, Howard C. Lewin, Romalisa Miranda, Ishac Cohen, Raluca D. Agafitei, John D. Friedman, and Daniel S. Berman for their article "Prediction of Myocardial Infarction Versus Cardiac Death by Gated Myocardial Perfusion SPECT: Risk Stratification by the Amount of Stress-Induced Ischemia and the Poststress Ejection Fraction," which appeared in the Jo
