Subatomic turf wars. Molecular imaging holds the promise of personalized medicine, while pitting radiologists against oncologists, others over diagnostic role.

But a turf war is looming over who has the diagnostic role-radiologists, oncologists or others. "We're talking about a whole new way of thinking in terms of diagnosing and treating diseases," David Rollo says.
