Molecular US imaging- is this the future of ultrasound?
In recent issue of Radiology June 2013 267:3 661-662; Wang and coworkers used the clinical-grade P- and E-selectin-targeted microbubbles to image inflammatroy bowel disease and showed that experimental acute colitis leads to significantly increased local accumulation of the targeted microbubbles and that binding of the contrast agent to the inflammatory tissue correlates well with FDG-PET. With the immense ease and potential of ultrasound addition of molecular imaging to ultrasound holds the potential to revolutionize medial imaging in future.
