Molecular Imaging

Molecular imaging is a way to see what’s happening inside the body at the molecular and cellular level. Unlike x-rays, computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, and other diagnostic imaging procedures that predominantly offer anatomical pictures, molecular imaging allows physicians to see how the body is functioning and to measure its chemical and biological processes.

Biomarkers interact chemically with their surroundings and, in turn, alter the image according to molecular changes occurring in the area being examined. Piramal Imaging creates biomarkers which allow an imaging device to visualize the molecular changes in neurology, oncology, and cardiology.
