The optimum selection of the appropriate radiolabelled probe for the right target and the right patient is the foundation of theranostics in personalised medicine. In nuclear medicine, this process is realised through the appropriate choice of radiopharmaceuticals based on molecular biomarkers regarding molecular imaging. Theranostics is developing a strategy that can be used to implement accepted tools for individual molecular targeting, including diagnostics, and advances in genomic molecular knowledge, which has led to identifying theranostics biomaterials that have the potency to diagnose and treat malignancies. Today, numerous studies have reported on the discovery and execution of these radiotracers in personalised medicine. In this review, we presented our point of view of the most important theranostics agents that can be used to treat several types of malignancies. Molecular targeted radionuclide treatment methods based on theranostics are excellent paradigms of the relationship between molecular imaging and therapy that has been used to provide individualised or personalised patient care. Toward that end, a precise planned prospective examination of theranostics must be done to compare this approach to more standard therapies.
