  • Molecular Imaging: A Primer for Interventionalists and Imagers (Reprinted from J Vasc Interv Radiol, vol 17, pg 1405-1423, 2006) JOURNAL OF VASCULAR AND INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY Wang, D. S., Dake, M. D., Park, J. M., Kuo, M. D. 2009; 20 (7): S505-S522


    The characterization of human diseases by their underlying molecular and genomic aberrations has been the hallmark of molecular medicine. From this, molecular imaging has emerged as a potentially revolutionary discipline that aims to visually characterize normal and pathologic processes at the cellular and molecular levels within the milieu of living organisms. Molecular imaging holds promise to provide earlier and more precise disease diagnosis, improved disease characterization, and timely assessment of therapeutic response. This primer is intended to provide a broad overview of molecular imaging with specific focus on future clinical applications relevant to interventional radiology.
