Non-invasive imaging technologies for the diagnosis of disease typically involve the administration of contrast or signal enhancement agents that facilitate the visualization of organs or the state of a particular disease. Nanotechnology, particularly the development of nanoparticle-based agents, has had a tremendous impact in the design of targeted and specific nanoagents with the potential of homing on a particular area and interrogating for normal or disease processes. Nanoagents that interrogate at the molecular level the presence of specific molecular markers associated with the progression of diseases such as cancer and atherosclerosis are currently being developed and could potentially be used for the detection and treatment of these conditions.

This section/symposium will cover nanoparticle technologies for the visualization of disease-related markers at the molecular or cellular level using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), optical/fluorescent imaging, X-ray computed tomography (X-ray CT), ultrasound and positron emission tomography (PET), among others.

Topics & Application Areas

  • Nanoparticles for targeted imaging of disease
  • Multimodal nanoparticles
  • Theranostic Nanoparticles
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Fluorescence Molecular Tomography (FMT)
  • X-ray Computed Tomography
  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
  • Photodynamic Therapy
  • Other
