Recent advances in fluorine MR (19F MR) foreshadow some of the potential benefits to be expected for diagnosis and treatment of inflammation and arthritis. In this plenary lecture we survey the emerging technologies and opportunities for discovery that accompany theranostics with 19F MR, providing examples of current strategies and frontier applications, and considering potential directions for the future. The goal of such predictions - which in the past have typically underestimated the potential and value of new imaging technologies - is to provide an exciting destination to aim for and push the capabilities of MR-guided theranostics of inflammation and arthritis.
