Molecular Imaging in Oncology
by Martin G. Pomper

With molecular imaging becoming one the fastest growing topics in medical schools, Molecular Imaging in Oncology is the first comprehensive reference on molecular imaging in oncology.

Giving clinicians and researchers a greater understanding of the current field, Molecular Imaging in Oncology covers:

  • instrumentation and techniques
  • cancer imaging
  • probe design
  • molecular genetic imaging
  • cellular processes
  • clinical translation
Filled with over 500 high-resolution color images exhibiting diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities of molecular imaging in cancer, Molecular Imaging in Oncology outlines all procedures for the radiologists, radiology physicists, and oncologists in a concise single source guide.
