1 Nanoparticle = 6 Types of Medical Imaging

2015 22 Jan

Researchers have created a nanoparticle that can be detected by six medical imaging techniques: computed tomography (CT) scanning, positron emission tomography (PET) scanning, fluorescence imaging, photoacoustic imaging, upconversion imaging and Cerenkov luminescence imaging. In the future, patients could receive a single injection of the nanoparticles... Read more
