Oncology

Molecular imaging uses some of the most advanced imaging technologies available today, providing physicians with valuable information in the assessment and extend of disease.

Oncology imaging provides valuable information in the assessment and extent of diseases.

Physicians have the capability to visualize images of various biological processes in anatomical, structural, and molecular depictions. 

As a result, physicians can make more informed decisions for patient management through detection, diagnosis and prognosis, staging (extent and location), assessing therapeutic targets, monitoring therapy and evaluating response to therapy (Clinical Applications).
