Imaging brain tumor by dendrimer-based optical/paramagnetic nanoprobe across the blood-brain barrier

Author affiliations

Abstract

A multimodal optical/paramagnetic nanoprobe, Den-Angio, was developed and demonstrated a capability to circumvent the blood brain barrier (BBB) and visualize brain tumors with high sensitivity in vivo. Den-Angio holds promise to pre-operatively localize brain tumors and make image-guided tumor resection possible during surgery.
