Summary "This authoritative reference reviews current and emerging molecular imaging modalities that are expected to impact the detection and treatment of lung diseases in the near future - including applications in gene expression and inflammation imaging; the imaging of pulmonary cytokine regulation; the molecular imaging of angiogenesis, the airways, and lung cancer; and the imaging of cellular death and cell trafficking."--BOOK JACKET.
