Molecular imaging methods offer way to improve asthma diagnosis

11/6/2008 | EurekAlert!

U.S. researchers used a variety of noninvasive real-time molecular imaging techniques to visualize the response of immune cells, or eosinophils, to the asthma drug dexamethasone in the lungs of mice with allergic airway inflammation. The use of advanced imaging techniques combined with an optical sensor could improve the ability of doctors to diagnose asthma and evaluate the efficacy of different treatment options, the researchers said.
