The current generation of imaging nanoparticles is diverse and dependent on its myriad of applications. This book provides an overview of how these imaging particles can be designed to fulfill specific requirements for applications across different imaging modalities. It presents, for the first time, a comprehensive interdisciplinary overview of the impact nanoparticles have on biomedical imaging and is a common central resource for researchers and teachers.
A nanoparticle is a microscopic particle with at least one dimension less than 100 nm. Nanoparticle research is an area of intense scientific research due to a wide variety of potential applications in biomedical, optical, and electronic fields. Written and edited by pioneers and innovators in the field, this book explains how nanoparticles can be designed to meet specific requirements for applications in distinct biomedical imaging modalities. With its interdisciplinary approach, the book draws on findings from a diverse range of fields. Illustrations help readers grasp key concepts and follow the steps for important processes. The book is intended for imaging researchers, chemists, physicists, biologists, pathologists and clinicians, giving them the foundation needed to make new discoveries and find new applications for nanoparticles in biomedical imaging.
