The emerging field of molecular and genomic imaging is providing new opportunities to visualize and quantify the biology of living organisms. To reach such goal all the major imaging modalities concur to this new field, each with its mechanism for generating contrast and with its spatial resolution and specificity. This review deals with a brief introduction to the molecular imaging principles and reports on the state-of-the-art in cardiovascular disease.

Keywords: molecular imaging, targeted contrast agents, cardiovascular disease, imaging technologies
