Functional Neuroimaging in Whiplash Injury

Functional Neuroimaging in Whiplash Injury_ New Approaches 3rd Edition-1

Andreas Otte 2022 Whiplash injuries are often looked upon as accidents causing extensive symptomatology without the presence of objective findings. They can cause a disease condition, which is frequently denied, but is unfortunate and may become chronic and invalidating for the patient. In the past three decades, much has been published on whiplash injury, yet […]

Image Fusion in Preclinical Applications

Image Fusion in Preclinical Applications 1st Edition-1

Editors: Claudia Kuntner-Hannes, York Haemisch 2019 In the last decade, our understanding of the function of the human body and the interaction of drugs with certain molecular targets has increased significantly. This deepened insight is a result of the wider availability of new diagnostic tools such as those developed by the different “-omics” disciplines (genomics, […]

Perspectives on Nuclear Medicine for Molecular Diagnosis and Integrated Therapy

Perspectives on Nuclear Medicine for Molecular Diagnosis and Integrated Therapy-1

Yuji Kuge • Tohru Shiga • Nagara Tamaki Editors 2016 Molecular imaging aims to visualize specific molecular and cellular targets that are relevant to tissue characterization. Molecular imaging technologies have rapidly developed worldwide in recent years. Among such developments, nuclear medicine technologies using PET and SPECT have come to play important roles in quantitative analysis of biological processes in […]
