Molecular Imaging of the Lungs by Daniel Schuster, Timothy Blackwell

By Daniel Schuster, Timothy Blackwell

This authoritative reference reports present and rising molecular imaging modalities which are anticipated to affect the detection and remedy of lung illnesses within the close to future-including purposes in gene expression and irritation imaging; the imaging of pulmonary cytokine rules; the molecular imaging of angiogenesis, the airlines, and lung melanoma; and the imaging of mobile demise and mobile trafficking.

These human genes have been suggested as candidate reporter genes because they exhibit limited expression in the body. , [18F]fluoroethylspiperone for D2 receptors (203), 111In-pentetreotide for SST receptors (121), and 123/124/131I or 99mTc-pertechnetate for the sodium/iodide symporter (202,204)]. Furthermore, as these are human genes, the products of gene expression are less likely to be immunogenic. More recently, new reporter genes encoding for “artificial” membrane receptors have been developed (205,206).
