Molecular imaging maps the locations of specific molecules and biomaterials within living tissue. As such, it has the potential to diagnose a disease, to monitor the course of that disease, and possibly facilitate treatment. Molecular imaging has developed into a promising new strategy for the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of disease.
