Bifunctional gold nanorod-loaded polymeric microcapsules for both contrast-enhanced ultrasound imaging and photothermal therapy

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel bifunctional theranostic agent has been fabricated through the combination of acoustic responsive poly(lactic acid) microcapsules and near infrared absorbed gold nanorods that holds the potential of simultaneous ultrasound contrast diagnostic imaging and photothermal therapy.
