About this book

Diagnostic imaging relies primarily on morphological criteria. However, there is an incereasing need for more disease-spcific informatin. New developments in imaging techniques and in molecular biology provide new imaging strategies to address functional and disease-specific parameters for clinical and scientific applications. The acquisition of functional and disease-specific information may lead to true "molecular imaging" which benefits from intensive collaboration between biologists, clinicians and physicists. This workshop formed the platform for an intensive discussion between experts in the fields of molecular biology and diagnostic imaging on basic principles, current methodology and future perspectives of MR, ultrasound and scintigraphic imaging approaches. This book is a comprehensive summary of the presentations and sicussions of the workshop. It provides the reader with the state-of-the-art informationi on diagnostic imaging and the links to molecular biology that are necessary for the development of molecular imaging.
