New research in the FASEB Journal shows how combining photoacoustic tomography with gold nanobeacons allows researchers to see blood vessel formation in detail without a microscope.
A new breakthrough in imaging technology using light and sound will allow health-care providers to see microscopic details inside the body. Access to this level of detail potentially eliminates the need for some invasive biopsies, but it also has the
potential to help health-care providers make diagnoses earlier than ever before—even before symptoms arise.
