Molecular Imaging and Biology

ISSN: 1536-1632 (Print) 1860-2002 (Online)


Molecular Imaging and Biology presents original research contributions on the utilization of molecular imaging in problems of relevance in biology and medicine. The primary objective of the journal is to provide a forum for the discovery of molecular mechanisms of health and disease through the use of imaging techniques.

Among the topics covered are molecular imaging investigations of macromolecular targets involved in significant biological processes; design and evaluation of molecular probes used to investigate macromolecular targets and their functions; and study of in vivo animal models of disease for the development of new molecular diagnostics and therapeutics.

The overall goal is to translate basic science discoveries into molecular imaging of disease in patients, both to investigate the biological nature of disease in actual patients and to establish new molecular imaging diagnostic procedures.

Molecular Imaging and Biology is the official journal of the World Molecular Imaging Society and the European Society for Molecular Imaging.

The 2014 h5 Index for Molecular Imaging and Biology is 35, i.e. there were 35 articles published between 2009 and 2013 that have each been cited at least 35 times.

Google Ranking: #11 in the Nuclear Medicine, Radiotherapy, and Molecular Imaging category.
