Molecular and Functional Imaging: Image and Treat Paradigm 
10:30 a.m. - 12:30 a.m.

Chair: Amir H. Gandjbakhche, NICHD

Sponsored by: Molecular and functional Optical Imaging and Spectroscopy Interest Group

Non-invasive monitoring of treatments efficacy using specific targeted molecules or novel imaging techniques  are critical for physicians to assess the effects of therapeutic regimen and in some instances  help to make decision in the operating room. These early assessments can save lives, decrease cost, and morbidity.   In this symposium novel imaging systems such as EPR, PET-Photonics, Diffusion Tensor Imaging, and MRI will address  different facets of the new "Image and Treat " paradigm in medicine.
