The first resource of its kind, this book covers cutting-edge research on the use of nanoparticles for in vivo diagnostic medical imaging and therapy. It discusses a variety of nanoparticles, including quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, dendrimers, gold nanoshells, metal nanorods, micelles, liposomes, polymers, MRI iron oxide particles, and microbubbles. Examples in the book include multifunctional nanoparticles that designed for multimodality imaging and simultaneous diagnostic and therapy (theranostic) applications.


"This is a timely book focused on nanoimaging which combines molecular imaging and nanomedicine. True to the multidisciplinary nature of this new discipline, the book contains information on material science, biology, imaging physics and theranostics. The rich illustrations and well-written text make the journey from basic concepts to in vivo imaging and therapeutic studies highly accessible to readers of all levels."

—Dr. King C. Li, M.D. Anderson Foundation Distinguished Chair in Radiology and Imaging Sciences

"Nanotechnology is on the verge to revolutionize all aspects of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. The merger of nanotechnology with imaging technology gave rise to molecular imaging. A large diversity of nanoprobes offer a hitherto unseen increase of signal intensity and signal stability enabling the assessment of cellular processes under physiological and pathological conditions at an unprecedented level of resolution. William Phillips and Beth Goins have succeeded in inviting outstanding investigators who have been pioneering molecular imaging in their particular area of expertise to contribute to this book, which is prone to become a must-read for anyone interested in imaging life on a molecular level."

—Dr. Volkmar Weissig, Associate Editor, Journal of Liposome Research

"The motivation for the book is to demonstrate the advantages offered by nano-particles for drug delivery and imaging applications. It is expected that many of the approaches are generic so that principles explained for one specific nano-particle will also be useful for procedures using other nano-particles. The precise audience for the book is not identified but, due to the cross disciplinary nature of this area activity, one can expect that clinicians, medical researchers and nanotechnologists will all benefit from reading some or all of the book."
