An Old Concept in New Clothing

Edited by Elisabeth Eppard

University Hospital Magdeburg

In recent years, due to advancing technology and diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, medicine and health care have become more patient-oriented. This concept of personalized medicine or theranostics can be traced back to the beginnings of nuclear medicine when radioisotopes were uncovered as diagnostic and therapeutic tools.

This book examines new developments in theranostics and provides a comprehensive overview of the state of the art in this exciting discipline.
