MICAD adds 23 new agents
The Molecular Imaging and Contrast Agent Database (MICAD) program, which is designed to foster research and development in molecular imaging by providing free online scientific information regarding in vivo molecular imaging and contrast agents, has added 23 agents to its roster.

The new agents are:

PET agents:
