“I believe that Molecular Imaging and Targeted Therapy will be one of the largest changes in medical practice this century. Current molecular imaging and therapeutic options are only the beginning of a landslide of new options for the diagnosis and treatment of disease. With such rapidly emerging changes, an integrated approach to each patient’s structural and molecular imaging, and therapy is crucial.”
All aspects of nuclear medicine including PET/CT, brain, cardiac and oncology imaging.
