Table of Contents

1. Introduction.
2. Imaging techniques.
3. Molecular reporter systems.
4. Design of molecular imaging probes.
5. Drug imaging.
6. Imaging gene expression.
7. Imaging the function of gene products.

Basic principles of imaging technologies, reporter moieties for the various imaging modalities and the design of target reporter constructs are described in the first part. The second part illustrates how these tools can be used to visualize relevant molecular events."--BOOK JACKET.
