Disease. 72 Evaluation of the evidence for PET in clinical oncology practice has, however, been complicated by the inherent diagnostic nature of this imaging technique. While standard evidence-based approaches to treatment require randomized controlled trials to establish the appropriate outcome or efﬁcacy measures for assessment, imaging techniques provide information which is commonly used as only a part of the management paradigm of most patients. 6,73 The establishment of diagnostic accuracy, and impact on patient management (including cost), are therefore the most appropriate levels of evidence that can be accurately obtained for PET in clinical practice.
G. proliferation). A further approach to imaging deﬁned molecular events in living cells is through synthetic oligonucleotide constructs (aptimers and anti-sense fragments), which have been developed to bind target peptides and nucleic acid sequences. The expression of speciﬁc genes can be monitored by ‘reporter genes’. 13 The imaging of live cells has long been used in nuclear medicine for the diagnosis of infection, through labeling white blood cells with 111In- or 99mTc-based oximes, as well as for blood pool studies in a range of conditions with 99m Tc-labeled red blood cells.
Radiolabeled tracers enable the imaging of physiologic events noninvasively, and the vast array of new targets and signaling pathways identiﬁed as playing key roles in disrupting normal cellular function can be potentially identiﬁed and quantiﬁed through these imaging techniques. The term ‘molecular imaging’ initially appeared in the medical literature in the late 1990s. Despite a clear deﬁnition the term rapidly became widely incorporated within both the medical vocabulary and organizational titles.
