The evolution of molecular imaging

The Evolution of What?

Since the earth was born and man was created, there has been much evolution in the universe. Man, as a species, has evolved to what we are today (and we continue to evolve over time). This in itself is a complex topic, but perhaps we can reflect on an interesting aspect of evolution – with…

The Use of Preclinical Imaging in Drug Development

The process of developing drugs can take at least 10 years. That’s because of the lengthy research, development, and testing phases that must occur. Only after these stages are completed can the drug be manufactured for use. The types of studies needed to move through the drug discovery/drug development process usually follows a path from…

3 Most Common Uses of Molecular Imaging

One of the modern technologies which is applied in the field of medicine is molecular imaging. This type of imaging gives us a clear picture of what is occurring in our bodies on a molecular level. It helps us to take look into the molecules and the cells. There are other imaging technologies used in…

5 Amazing Things Molecular Imaging Has Captured

It is on record that not less than 16 million molecular imaging procedures are carried out each year in the United States. Out of these, 35- 40% are cancer examinations and 40-50% are cardiac related. The discovery of Molecular Imaging (MI) more than 58 years ago has brought about a new revolution in the field…
