    This work presents approaches and biomedical challenges of dynamic contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI). DCE-MRI using small molecular weight gadolinium chelates enables noninvasive imaging characterization of tissue vascularity. Depending on the technique used, data reflecting tissue perfusion (blood flow, blood volume, mean transit time), microvessel permeability surface area p... View full abstract»

    This paper provides an overview of the field of molecular imaging by giving representative examples to illustrate the excitement and the dynamic nature of this field. On the first paper on molecular imaging, PET, SPECT, and bioluminescence imaging were focused on. In this issue, approaches that are sometimes called "physiologic imaging" or "functional imaging" are concentrated on. Combining target... View full abstract»

    This work presents a review of pH measurement methods and applications in cancers. Magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging and magnetic resonance imaging measurements indicate that pH gradients of up to 1.0 pH unit can exit within 1-cm distance. Although measurement of blood pH can indicate systemic problems, it cannot pinpoint the lesion or quantitatively assess the magnitude of excursion from n... View full abstract»

    The applications of ultrasound contrast agents have recently expanded from blood pool enhancement to include passive targeting of physiological systems (in particular, the lymphatic and reticuloendothelial systems) and molecular imaging of factors expressed in angiogenesis, atherosclerosis, and inflammation. This article summarizes the progress made in targeted imaging using ultrasound with an emp... View full abstract»

    Gliomas are infiltrative primary brain tumors that are extremely heterogeneous in terms of both their imaging characteristics and response to therapy. Anatomic magnetic resonance (MR) images are limited in terms of their ability to evaluate the spatial extent of the lesion and to distinguish recurrent tumor from treatment-induced necrosis. An in vivo molecular imaging technique that has shown prom... View full abstract»
