Nanotechnology Provides an Armory of Imaging and Therapeutic Applications

Scientists have created dynamic nanoparticles that could provide a range of applications to diagnose and treat cancer. Built on a simple-to-construct polymer base, these particles can be utilized as contrast agents to illuminate tumors for MRI and PET scans or deliver chemo and other therapies to kill tumors.  More...
