Molecular imaging is defined as the in vivo measurement of biological processes at the cellular and molecular levels. These techniques can visualise pathophysiological processes noninvasively in real time, with the potential for serial monitoring, and provide information about specific molecular alterations underlying the disease status of individual subjects. By complementing conventional ‘anatomical or physiological’ imaging, molecular imaging enables early detection of disease, disease staging, and quantitative assessment of therapeutic response.
