Abstract

Imaging has a long history in cancer diagnosis and staging, and is increasingly used to evaluate therapeutic response (Eisenhauer et al., 2009; Wen et al., 2010). Molecular imaging is being developed for rapid characterization of response (especially for targeted therapy), with the long-term goal of more individualized therapies (Weber, 2006; Mankoff et al., 2007b).
