Photoacoustic imaging goes for gold

Abstract:
Photoacoustic imaging is an optical technique that can be used to visualize abnormalities in soft tissue. Now, a Netherlands-based research consortium is investigating the possibility of adding gold nanoparticles into the photoacoustic mix in the hope that the work will one day yield a cost-effective breast-cancer detection system, and perhaps even a new type of therapy.
