This special issue will be edited by researcher Xin Zhou from Wuhan Institute of Physics and Mathematics, professor Michael McMahon from JohnsHopkins Universityand professor Shaoqun Zeng from Huazhong University of Science and Technology. The information of calling for papers is as follows:


Call for Papers

        Molecular imaging is defined as the ability to visualize and quantitatively measure the function of biological and cellular processes in vivo.The main advantage of in vivo molecular imaging is its ability to characterize diseased tissues without invasive biopsies or surgical procedures.Molecular imaging can be applied to all avenues of medical imaging: early detection/screening, diagnosis, therapy delivery/monitoring, and treatment follow-up.

        In this special issue, we take a great interest in studies on molecular imaging. Particularly, papers that deal with functional investigations of molecular imaging are welcome. Cutting-edge reviews relevant to this topic are also considered. This special issue will bring our communities the most recent ideas and advances in this field.
