Pharmacological fMRI (phMRI) which uses fMRI to determine regional effects of drugs on the brain, is another growing application of this technology in preclinical drug testing (Borsook et al. 2006; Dijkhuizen 2006; Negus et al. 2006). , its combination with other techniques such as optical or electrophysiological measures in order to better understand the physiological basis of fMRI and its interpretation with respect to altered neuronal activity (Colonnese et al. 2008; Huttunen et al. 2008; Logothetis et al.

2007). Molecular imaging using magnetic nanoparticles will likely also prove a useful tool for monitoring stem cell migration and therapies (Magnitsky et al. 2007). In addition to detecting early stages of the disease process, nanoparticles may be designed to also deliver treatment in the future. Finally, future integration of molecular imaging into the process of drug development can be anticipated to facilitate the preclinical evaluation of targeted drug treatments.
