Using lanthanide ions in molecular bioimaging

Author affiliations


Trivalent lanthanide ions offer remarkable opportunities in the design of bioimaging agents: this review presents an accessible discussion of their application in both optical and magnetic resonance imaging. Aspects of molecular design, control over key physical properties and biological compatibility are discussed in this context, together with developments and opportunities as responsive probes and in multimodal imaging.
