Molecular imaging is primarily about the chemistry of novelbiological probes, yet the vast majority of practitioners are notchemists or biochemists. This is the first book, written from achemist's point of view, to address the nature of the chemicalinteraction between probe and environment to help elucidatebiochemical detail instead of bulk anatomy.
- Covers all of the fundamentals of modern imaging methodologies, including their techniques and application within medicine andindustry
- Focuses primarily on the chemistry of probes and imagingagents, and chemical methodology for labelling andbioconjugation
- First book to investigate the chemistry of molecularimaging
- Aimed at students as well as researchers involved in the areaof molecular imaging
