Molecular Imaging

Molecular imaging is a new medical discipline that integrates cell biology, molecular biology and diagnostic imaging. Clinical applications include nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound (US).In molecular imaging probes which are known as biomarkers are used, those interact chemically with their surroundings and turn alter the image according to molecular changes occurring within the area of interest. This ability to image fine molecular changes opens up an incredible number of exciting possibilities for medical application, including detection and treatment of disease and further more allows for quantitative tests imparting a greater degree of objectivity to the study of these areas. One emerging technology is MALDI molecular imaging based on mass spectrometry.
