Article/Chapter Title: Molecular imaging of lung cancer
Abstract: Medical imaging has undergone a remarkable revolution and expansion in the past two decades. This is largely due to improved imaging technology involving all the major imaging modalities: magnetic resonance (MR), computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET), ultrasound and optical imaging. These advances and improvements in technology are being rapidly translated into the clinic and have established new standards of medical practice. For example, “Cancer imaging” was identified as one of six “extraordinary scientific opportunities” by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in 1997-1998, and subsequent funding initiatives from NCI have provided a major stimulus for further developments. A major component of this imaging initiative included the development and support for molecular imaging. © 2005 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
