Nuclear medicine is a powerful tool in combating infectious diseases, offering unique diagnostic and therapeutic solutions to the global health crisis. It develops new imaging and radiopharmaceutical techniques to identify infectious lesions accurately. Theranostics combines diagnostic imaging with therapy to make treatment more effective and non-pharmacological, reducing side effects. Molecular imaging techniques enable the observation of infections and diseases, aiding in epidemiology and surveillance. Nuclear medicine can provide prompt and efficient diagnostic abilities to emerging and re-emerging infectious health challenges and pandemics. Portable and flexible scanning technology is facilitated by nuclear medicine, making it suitable for on-site imaging in local areas. Integrated artificial intelligence and multimodality molecular imaging techniques improve diagnostic capabilities and the quality and efficiency of diagnosing infectious diseases. Despite challenges in developing and accessing radiotracers, all stakeholders must work together to harness the potential of nuclear medicine to improve patient outcomes and global health.
