Molecular Imaging can be defined as the ability to visualise, characterise and quantitatively measure biological and cellular processes and functions in vivo. One of the main advantages of in vivo molecular imaging is that it enables characterisation of the pathology of tissue diseases without the need of invasive biopsies or surgical procedures; with this information at hand, a more individualised treatment-planning approach can be applied. Molecular imaging encompasses a range of imaging techniques that rely on the utilisation of probes exogenously added to target and detect specific cellular or molecular processes in a living organism.
The Molecular Imaging Unit provides CNIO researchers with state-of-the-art molecular imaging equipment and human resources in order to guarantee the highest quality studies, to develop and update protocols and imaging techniques that serve to optimise visualisation of tumours in both the preclinical and clinical fields, and also to assess and advise researchers on the best-suited imaging modality for their research projects.
