During the last decade, there has been an explosive growth in the development of functional and molecular imaging techniques. Developments in this multidisciplinary domain include new probes, imaging methods and novel instruments.
To enable accurate localization of the functional image, nowadays functional imaging systems are often combined with anatomical imaging systems into so-called hybrid or multimodality imaging systems. These hybrid combinations have recently come on the market in small animal versions.
