Here the authors report on the synthesis, characterization, and potential utility of ultra-small NaYF4:Nd3+/NaGdF4 nanocrystals coated with manganese dioxide (usNP-MnO2) for spatiotemporal modulation of hypoxia in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas.
Tatjana Opacic shares a study where her lab developed a new method called motion model ultrasound localization microscopy (mULM) for morphological and functional characterization of tumors at super-resolution.
In this talk, recorded during the Innovation in Imaging Summit 2018 in Toronto, researcher Danielle Charron shares her lab's approach to creating photoacoustic nanoparticles. She highlights how a lot of the work they do in fluorescent imaging can also be done using photoacoustics as well.
This study by Yosra Toumia et al. advances the knowledge of the behavior of a hybrid system consisting of pristine graphene anchored polyvinyl alcohol microbubbles (G/PVA MB), and is a proof concept for their efficiency as contrast agents in photoacoustic as well as ultrasound imaging.
Metastasis rather than primary tumors determine prognosis and mortality in the majority of cancer patients. Detection of metastatic lesions is critical to determine prognosis and suitable treatments. We developed a method... Read full story.
The recent 2016 FDA approval of Bracco’s Lumason for its use in liver lesion detection for both adults and children, marks a milestone for microbubble imaging, paving the way for increased adoption and expanded clinical use of microbubbles in abdominal and pelvic imaging.
Converting nanoparticles or monomeric compounds into larger supramolecular structures by endogenous or external stimuli is increasingly popular because these materials are useful for imaging and treating diseases. However, conversion of microstructures to nanostructures is less common. Read more.
Take a look at the NEW Vevo LAZR-X Photoacoustic Imaging System (featured at WMIC - World Molecular Imaging Congress in September). Presented by Drew Heinmiller, Product Manager, Fujifilm VisualSonics.
The merging of drug therapy and diagnostics to advance personalized medicine is one definition of theranostics. Research in advanced theranostics elevates this concept by merging nanotechnology to benefit drug discovery. Read more.
