In Vivo MR Techniques in Drug Discovery and Development
edited by Nicolau Beckmann

In Vivo MR Techniques in Drug Discovery and Development illustrates the use of MR techniques throughout the drug discovery and development process, from target identification and validation to clinical studies.


  • Discusses applications for specific disease areas, emphasizing the advantages and limitations of the approaches
  • Covers both preclinical animal research and clinical studies
  • Includes an entire chapter devoted to high-throughput imaging of mice and another to the design of contrast agents for molecular imaging applications
