Stem Cell Labeling for Delivery and Tracking Using Noninvasive Imaging (Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering)

Stem Cell Labeling for Delivery and Tracking Using Noninvasive Imaging (Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stem Cell Labeling for Delivery and Tracking Using Noninvasive Imaging provides a comprehensive overview of cell therapy imaging, ranging from the basic biology of cell therapeutic choices to the preclinical and clinical applications of cell therapy. It emphasizes the use of medical imaging for therapeutic delivery/targeting, cell tracking, and determining therapeutic efficacy.

The book first presents background information and insight on the major classes of stem and progenitor cells. It then describes the main imaging modalities and state-of-the-art techniques that are currently employed for stem cell tracking. In the final chapters, leading scholars offer clinical perspectives on existing and potential uses of stem cells as well as the impact of image-guided delivery and tracking in major organ systems.

Through clear descriptions and color images, this volume illustrates how noninvasive imaging is used to track stem cells as they repair damaged tissue in the body. With contributions from some of the most prominent preclinical and clinical researchers in the field, the book helps readers to understand the evolving concepts of stem cell labeling and tracking as the field continues to move forward.

Book News Annotation:

Kraitchman (radiology and radiological science, Johns Hopkins U.) and Wu (radiology and medicine, Stanford U.) compile 24 articles by radiologists, biologists, surgeons, and other medical specialists and researchers from North America, Europe, and Australia who detail stem cell labeling and imaging techniques for therapeutic delivery and targeting, cell tracking, and determining therapeutic efficacy. They outline the major classes of stem and progenitor cells, from human embryonic stem cells to induced pluripotent stem cells; the main imaging techniques used for stem cell tracking, such as ultrasound and magnetic resonance, fluorescence, x-ray, and bioluminescence imaging; cell-labeling methods; and current and potential uses of stem cells and the impact of image-guided delivery and tracking in major organ systems, such as cardiology, the musculoskeletal system, neurological disorders, and cancer cell therapy.

Synopsis:

This book describes how MR imaging is used to track stem cells as they repair damaged tissue in the body. It provides a comprehensive overview of cell therapy imaging, ranging from the basic biology of cell therapeutic choices to the preclinical and clinical applications of cell therapy. The expert contributors emphasize the use of medical imaging for therapeutic delivery/targeting, cell tracking, and determining therapeutic efficacy. They discuss the different methodologies of stem cell labeling, the benefits of using multiple imaging modalities, and the application of the techniques to specific diseases in clinical trials. A CD-ROM includes images and movies.
