molecular imaging

What is molecular imaging?

Molecular imaging is the visualization, characterization, and measurement of biologic processes at the molecular and cellular levels in humans and other living systems. It is essentially a noninvasive means to study in vivo biochemistry and cell biology and is useful to optimize diagnosis and therapy of disease in individualized patients. Nuclear medicine techniques and optical imaging techniques are most commonly used to perform molecular imaging, the former predominantly in humans and the latter predominantly in small animals for preclinical research.
