Exposing breast cancer using nanoscale polymers

Photoacoustic imaging is a ground-breaking technique for spotting tumors inside living cells with the help of light-absorbing compounds known as contrast agents. A*STAR researchers have now discovered a way to improve the ...

Chemists devise revolutionary 3-D bone-scanning technique

Chemists from Trinity College Dublin, in collaboration with RCSI, have devised a revolutionary new scanning technique that produces extremely high-res 3D images of bones—without exposing patients to X-ray radiation.

Nanoparticle pinpoints blood vessel plaques

A team of researchers, led by scientists at Case Western Reserve University, has developed a multifunctional nanoparticle that enables magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to pinpoint blood vessel plaques caused by atherosclerosis. ...

Nanoparticles on track to distinguish tumour tissue

Gold nanoparticles could be used to help detect the margins between tumours and normal tissue, enabling surgeons to better determine which tissue to remove and which to leave.
