About this book


This volume provides an introduction for the scientist who is new to the field of molecular imaging, as well as detailed methods for experts in other areas of molecular imaging. Chapters detail the advantages and limitations of combining fluorescent, bioluminescent and radioisotopic, creating dual modality imaging reporter gene construct, bioluminescent imaging, and  bioluminescent or fluorescent imaging. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Authoritative and practical, Reporter Gene Imaging : Methods and Protocols aims to ensure successful results in the further study of this vital field.
