This special issue will broadly cover the topics related to Molecular Imaging and Theranostics. Molecular imaging and theranostics are two closely related fields within medical science that involve the visualization and characterization of biological processes at the molecular and cellular levels. Molecular imaging enables the detection of diseases at early stages, often before clinical symptoms manifest, improving the chances of successful treatment. Theranostic approaches allow for real-time monitoring of treatment response, facilitating adjustments to optimize therapeutic outcomes. Both molecular imaging and theranostics contribute to the concept of personalized medicine by tailoring medical care to individual patients based on their specific molecular characteristics. These disciplines play a crucial role in advancing personalized medicine and improving the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases. This issue aims to highlight significant research findings and recent advances on the following topics but not limited.

  • Radiopharmaceutical development and clinical translation
  • Optical and magnetic artificial intelligence-assisted medical imaging
  • Ultrasound-based visualized precision diagnosis therapy
  • Intelligent nanomaterials for theranostic of various diseases

All the invited and contributed manuscripts will undergo the standard peer-review procedure of the Journal “Theranostics”, and will be scrutinized by expert reviewers in the field. The DEADLINE for the full article submission is set for August 30, 2024, and the first decision will conclude within 6-8 weeks from submission after peer-review process.

Manuscripts for the special issue can be submitted online at https://www.thno.org/ms/submit (mark "Molecular Imaging And Theranostics Special Issue" in the "Suggested reviewers" field to identify the paper).

Detailed formatting instructions, in particular, the formatting of references, can be found in http://www.thno.org/ms/author.
