Small wonders

Abstract:
Imagine a small capsule measuring in nano metres, scanning your internal organs and providing details to censors placed outside. This may have sounded like science fiction a couple of years ago, but today, imagination has transformed into reality. It's been a collaboration between medicine and nanotechnology that has given birth to the revolutionary concept of nanomedicine, which is the medical application of nanotechnology. Nano-sized particles have been considered and investigated as potential medicines for many decades.

Over the years scientists have been studying the structures of small molecules and using them to produce biologically active materials. There are different forms of materials that could be considered as nanomedicine, for example, polymers, liposomes, emulsions, nano particles, proteins etc. New hybrid nanomaterials can be used to produce a highly efficient MRI contrast.
