Molecular Imaging

About this Journal

Aims and scope

Molecular Imaging is a peer-reviewed journal highlighting the breadth of molecular imaging research from basic science to preclinical studies to human applications. Molecular Imaging covers all imaging modalities including:

  • Nuclear
  • Optical
  • Magnetic Resonance
  • Ultrasound
  • Photoacoustic
  • CT
  • Magnetic Particle Imaging

Additionally, Molecular Imaging covers:

  • Development, application and validation of molecular imaging contrast agents
  • Probes for cellular and molecular targets (proteins, receptors, enzymes, genes and gene products that are present as a result of normal function or disease)
  • In vitro and in vivo assay methodology
  • Quantitative imaging and kinetic modeling
  • Animal model systems supporting targeted imaging approaches
  • Development, testing and validation of imaging devices

Molecular Imaging has been continuously published since 2002. The journal encourages the submission of unsolicited Reviews and papers reporting null or negative results in addition to Research Articles.

This journal will be of particular interest to:

  • Molecular Imaging Scientists and Physicians
  • Basic and Translational Cancer Researchers
  • Medical Physicists
  • Radiopharmaceutical and Medicinal Chemists
  • Cell and Molecular, Chemical, and Systems Biologists
  • Pharmacologists
