Clinical imaging for disease diagnosis is an important field for research and development. Cardiff University were co-developers of a heart imaging agent (Myoview®), one of the most successful agents for the diagnosis of heart disease worldwide. This talk will look at how chemistry is being used alongside physics and engineering developments in clinical imaging techniques such as MRI and PET scanning.
