As per available reports about 5 relevant Journals, 258 Conferences Proceedings are presently dedicated exclusively to Positron Emission Tomography and about 163 open access articles are being published on Positron Emission Tomography.
Positron Emission Tomography is a nuclear medicine, functional imaging technique which studies metabolic activity or body function that produces a three-dimensional image of functional processes in the body. This means that a tiny amount of a radioactive substance, called a radionuclide is used during the procedure to assist in the examination of the tissue under study. PET is most often used by oncologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons, and cardiologists. Topics like: Single-photon emission tomography, Regional cerebral blood flow, Nuclear Medicine.
OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.
Scope & Importance:
The radionuclide used in PET scans is made by attaching a radioactive atom to chemical substances that are used naturally by the particular organ or tissue during its metabolic process. In PET scans of the brain, a radioactive atom is applied to glucose (blood sugar) to create a radionuclide called fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG), because the brain uses glucose for its metabolism. FDG is widely used in PET scanning. PET scans may be used to evaluate organs and/or tissues for the presence of disease or other conditions. PET may also be used to evaluate the function of organs such as the heart or brain. Another use of PET scans is in the evaluation of the treatment of cancer. Around 27 Open access articles, 33 Conference Proceedings and 10 National symposiums are going to be held across the globe.
Positron emission tomography (PET) is a nuclear medicine imaging procedure that is used to monitor various internal body organs and tissues in order to identify certain disease conditions. It is performed by using a small amount of radioactive substance called tracers which move through blood circulation and thus helps radiologists in identifying the area of concerns precisely. PET imaging procedure provides a better insight about the working condition of organs and tissues, size, shape and position. PET is most widely used by oncologists in order to diagnose various types of cancer; neurologists in order to diagnose neurological disorders and cardiologists in order to diagnose cardiovascular diseases. Ongoing developments in this area are likely to begin its use in other specialties as well. This is also performed in order to assess the progress of the treatment of certain diseases. This procedure is different from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) as they only show the tissue structure and blood flow to and from organs. This imaging procedure is also being used in combination with other diagnostic technologies such as CT with an aim to provide more precise information about various neurological, cardiovascular and cancer diseases.
