Aims and Scope

An exciting new journal in the area of contrast agents and molecular imaging, covering all areas of imaging technologies with a special emphasis on MRI!

Contrast Media & Molecular Imaging [CMMI] is a new journal providing an international forum for the expeditious publication of original scientific papers, reviews, highlights, surveys, and letters to the editors in the booming areas of contrast media and molecular imaging. The Journal is aimed at the academic, medical, and industrial communities, at the developers and users of these emerging and rapidly developing technologies, mainly in the areas of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, but also embracing all other in vivo imaging technologies such as x-Ray, PET/CT, etc.

Molecular imaging articles will concentrate on the potential role played by MR Imaging and MR Spectroscopy at visualizing, at the molecular or cellular level, the physiology and physio-pathological processes in humans and in animals.

Contrast Media articles will cover innovative work on all aspects of this field, such as the development of more sensitive agents, comparison of MR Imaging with other imaging modalities, and prompting of multi-modality approaches.

Contrast Media & Molecular Imaging will devote particular attention to the following fields: synthesis, characterization, and applications of new magnetic reporters, search for new vectors, coupling strategies, in vitro as well in vivo evaluation of new methodologies and applications.
