The device uses iron-based nanoparticles that are sensitive to substances such as oxygen and glucose.
Changes in the levels of these molecules can reflect whether a tumour is growing or shrinking. When the substances are detected, they bind to the nanoparticles and cause them to clump together. Doctors can then detect the clumps with a simple MRI scan.
