Researchers use Nanotechnology to Find Tumors
Biomedical engineers have used nanotechnology to find human melanoma tumors in mice while the growths are still invisible to conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Earlier detection can potentially increase the effectiveness of treatment. This is especially true with melanoma, which begins as a highly curable disorder, then progresses into an aggressive and deadly disease.
Samuel Wickline, M.D., professor of medicine, physics, biomedical engineering and cellular physiology at Washington University in St. Louis, and his colleague, Gregory Lanza, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of medicine, have detected tumors as small as a couple of millimeters in diameter.
