Abstract: The field of nanotechnology plays an important role in medical and pharmaceutical science. Nanomedicine deals with new technologies for developing customize or personalized drug delivery system. In the last decades there is development of nanomedicine in the treatment of cancer which only consist of therapeutic modalities so some limitations may arises regarding actual diagnosis of disease. So there is need of imaging along with its therapy hence Nuclear medicine is one of the advanced concept in field of nanotechnology which also include the concept of theranostic. Theranostics is type of nuclear medicine which is combination of both therapy and diagnostic. This is concept which monitor pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynic of drug in the body. In this review we presents brief overview of different theronostic techniques for the treatment of diffferent diseases specially for cancer.
