What an exciting time to be involved in nuclear medicine. After 20 plus years of mostly the same products and radioisotopes being utilized in nuclear medicine a whole new group of products and radioisotopes have been or are in the process of being approved by the FDA. While some of these products have been used […]MORE❯
Eighteen months ago the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) developed a task force to monitor and provide guidance to the imaging community with respect to COVID-19 infections manifesting in various imaging modalities, primarily FDG PET/CT or PET/MR. With the most recent variant, omicron, an unusual imaging pattern has been observed in the […]MORE❯
In the June issue of ACR’s Quality and Safety eNews, it was announced the ACR MRI Accreditation Program (MRAP) has developed a medium-sized phantom. ACR’s senior advisor for medical physics also shared important details about the medium phantom with the medical physics community in the March-April issue of the AAPM Newsletter (see page 25). The […]MORE❯

March 30, 2021 FDG-avid reactive lymphadenopathy on PET/CT has been reported in patients following COVID-19 vaccinations.1 Reactive lymphadenopathy has been reported in up to 16% of the patients following COVID-19 vaccination with the mRNA (Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna) vaccines; this side effect has not been reported to date with the AdV vector vaccine (Janssen/Johnson & Johnson).2-5 Some […]MORE❯
On behalf of the Medical Imaging & Technology Alliance (MITA*) Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) equipment manufacturers MPC is posting this message to assist in getting the word out. Please feel free to translate into local languages as necessary. The COVID19 pandemic impacts the way diagnostic imaging examinations are performed. Particularly, patients may need to wear […]MORE❯
Hello out there! We at MPC hope you all are doing well while navigating this new environment. This public meeting announcement came across our desk this morning so we thought we would share with our readers. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will be holding a public meeting to discuss how NRC medical licensees can request […]MORE❯
