Current status and future challenges for molecular imaging Journal Article

Article Title: Current status and future challenges for molecular imaging
Abstract: Molecular imaging (MI), used in its wider sense of biology at the molecular level, is a field that lies at the intersection of molecular biology and traditional medical imaging. As advances in medicine have exponentially expanded over the last few decades, so has our need to better understand the fundamental behaviour of living organisms in a non-invasive and timely manner. This commentary draws from topics the authors addressed in their presentations at the 2017 Royal Society Meeting ‘Challenges for chemistry in molecular imaging’, as well as a discussion of where MI is today and where it is heading in the future. This article is part of the themed issue ‘Challenges for chemistry in molecular imaging’. © 2017 The Author(s) Published by the Royal Society. All rights reserved.
