Dr. Peter Herscovitch, chair of SNMMI's Scientific Program Committee, announced at the society's annual meeting that this year's SNMMI Image of the Year is an FDG-PET/CT scan that shows the effectiveness of radium-223 dichloride in addressing bone metastases in breast cancer patients with bone-dominant disease.
