Progress in nanotechnology has resulted in the design and synthesis of many new types of nanoparticles. Concurrently, there has been a rapid explosion in new medical imaging technologies that can noninvasively detect and monitor the targeting of nanoparticles in vivo. As leading experts in the related fields, the editors and individual authors of this book describe up-to-date reviews on the application of these new nanoparticles for in vivo medical imaging and drug delivery.
This book covers cutting-edge research on the use of nanoparticles for in vivo diagnostic medical imaging and therapy. A variety of nanoparticles are discussed, including quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, dendrimers, gold nanoshells, metal nanorods, micelles, liposomes, polymers, MRI iron oxide particles, and microbubbles. Examples include multifunctional nanoparticles that are designed for multimodality imaging and simultaneous diagnostic and therapy (theranostic) applications.
The book is Volume 2 of the Pan Stanford Series on Biomedical Nanotechnology that is headed by Vladimir Torchilin and Mansoor Amiji.

Nanotechnology is on the verge to revolutionize all aspects of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. The merger of nanotechnology with imaging technology gave rise to molecular imaging. A large diversity of nanoprobes offer a hitherto unseen increase of signal intensity and signal stability enabling the assessment of cellular processes under physiological and pathological conditions at an unprecedented level of resolution. William Phillips and Beth Goins have succeeded in inviting outstanding investigators who have been pioneering molecular imaging in their particular area of expertise to contribute to this book, which is prone to become a must-read for anyone interested in imaging life on a molecular level.~Dr. Volkmar Weissig, Associate Editor, Journal of Liposome Research
The motivation for the book is to demonstrate the advantages offered by nano-particles for drug delivery and imaging applications. It is expected that many of the approaches are generic so that principles explained for one specific nano-particle will also be useful for procedures using other nano-particles. The precise audience for the book is not identified but, due to the cross disciplinary nature of this area activity, one can expect that clinicians, medical researchers and nanotechnologists will all benefit from reading some or all of the book.
The common theme which emerges from many chapters of the book is the scope for much more development and utilisation of nano-particle-based imaging techniques. Here challenges emerge for all 70 Book reviews who may contribute to this field and perhaps particularly to those who are in a position to innovate nano-particle design and manufacture. In that context, there is a clear need for a dialogue between suppliers and users of nano-particles and the present volume provides a strong platform on which to build the kind of working relationships which hopefully will result in such developments proceeding apace.~Contemporary Physics
