Nanorods Tag Tumors For Surgery
Doctors in the future might be able to detect early-stage ovarian cancer with the help of rod-shaped gold nanoparticles, according to a study reported in ACS Nano (DOI: 10.1021/nn304347g). After injecting mice with the nanorods, researchers from Stanford University used a combination of photoacoustic imaging and surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) to image various types of ovarian . . .
