Nephrotoxicity of Dextran Functionalized Graphene Nanoparticles and Their Potential as Magnetic Imaging Contrast Agents for Renal Abnormalities

, , , , , , , , , ,
Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) employs the use of blood pool contrast agents (CA) such as gadolinium (Gd3+) complexes that allow for delayed phase arterial and venous imaging and improve the sensitivity in detecting small [...]

Development of Nanoparticle-Based Gold Contrast Agent for Photoacoustic Tomography

, , , , , ,
Photoacoustic tomography (PAT) utilizes non-ionizing energy to obtain structural/functional information with high spatial resolution and sensitivity. Heterogeneous absorption of optical energy in biological tissues results in differentially expressed acoustic signals yielding spatial/temporal information. A critically [...]

Intracellular Uptake of Folate Receptor Targeted Superparamagnetic Nanoparticles for Enhanced Tumor Detection by MRI

, , , , , , , , ,
Tumor specific superparamagnetic nanoparticle conjugates are currently being developed as targeting-contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The application of such “smart” molecular imaging probes will have a significant clinical impact as a non-invasive method [...]
