  • The first book dedicated to imaging nanoparticles in vivo
  • Covers research on a wide variety of nanoparticles for monitoring disease detection and treatment by noninvasive medical imaging
  • Provides examples of the application of nanoparticles for numerous medical imaging modalities, including optical imaging, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, and magnetic resonance imaging


The first resource of its kind, this book covers cutting-edge research on the use of nanoparticles for in vivo diagnostic medical imaging and therapy. It discusses a variety of nanoparticles, including quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, dendrimers, gold nanoshells, metal nanorods, micelles, liposomes, polymers, MRI iron oxide particles, and microbubbles. Examples in the book include multifunctional nanoparticles that designed for multimodality imaging and simultaneous diagnostic and therapy (theranostic) applications.
