Cancer cells dedifferentiate with repect to cell function; their vascularity is more leaky, but perfusion is heterogenerously reduced, and interstitial fluid pressure is high, severely retarding delivery of agents from the blood. Targeted imaging is designed to produce a detectable difference between tissue that is visualized with single photon and positron emission tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, or ultrasonography. This book uniquely reports strategies for the application of molecular targeted imaging agents such as antibodies, peptides, receptors and contrast agents in the biologic grading of tumors, differential diagnosis of tumors, prediction of therapeutic response and monitoring tumor response to treatment. This book also describes updated information about the imaging of tumor angiogenesis, hypoxia, apoptosis and gene delivery as well as expression in the understanding and utility of tumor molecular biology for better cancer management.

Advanced imaging techniques often make it possible to diagnose localized abnormalities prior to irreversible damage. PET permits visualization of tumor metabolic or physiologic characteristics. MRI shows morphologic abnormalities and allows assessment of the functional status of tissue, including the ability to indirectly map areas of task-induced neuronal activation and to map blood volume and flow. MRS provides noninvasive biochemical information from tumors and surrounding normal tissue. By combining PET, MRI and MRS information we should be able to differentiate tumors from non-tumor lesions, characterize types or grades of tumors, monitor tumor regression, recurrence or response to therapy, and also image the location of gene delivery. This book reports updated techniques, instrumentation and clinical application of PET, MRI and MRS in cancer management.
