MULTI-FUNCTIONAL LINKING AGENT FOR IMAGING AND THERAPY Imaging technologies are uniquely positioned to enhance how localized and metastatic tumors are treated. In cases where surgery is indicated, a novel class of imaging agents which combine radioactive of fluorescent tags can be used to improve tumor visualization in real-time. When cancer has spread throughout the body, a cytotoxic compound can be combined with radioactive label to develop a “theranostic” method to see and treat disease. Tumor-specificity is critical to the success of these approaches and investigators at T...
