Molecular imaging is primarily about the chemistry of novel biological probes, yet the vast majority of practitioners are not chemists or biochemists. This is the first book, written from a chemist's point of view, to address the nature of the chemical interaction between probe and environment to help elucidate biochemical detail instead of bulk anatomy.
- Covers all of the fundamentals of modern imaging methodologies, including their techniques and application within medicine and industry
- Focuses primarily on the chemistry of probes and imaging agents, and chemical methodology for labelling and bioconjugation
- First book to investigate the chemistry of molecular imaging
- Aimed at students as well as researchers involved in the area of molecular imaging
