Sperimentazione preclinica di radiofarmaci

Part of the Imaging & Formazione book series (IMAG)


Negli ultimi anni il rapido sviluppo delle biotecnologie ha permesso di acquisire importanti conoscenze sulle basi molecolari che regolano il funzionamento normale o patologico di organismi di diversa complessità. Dal punto di vista della medicina, ciò ha rappresentato la base per l’identificazione di approcci terapeutici innovativi fondati sul concetto di medicina molecolare e di terapia personalizzata. A loro volta, medicina molecolare e terapia personalizzata hanno determinato un notevole input e ampia diffusione delle metodiche di imaging biomedico sia in campo clinico sia, soprattutto negli ultimi anni, nel settore preclinico.
