Nanomaterials for Cancer Diagnosis (3527313877) cover image


This first in-depth overview to cover all important types of nanostructures being explored for cancer detection brings together the diagnostic side of oncology and nanotechnology. It presents imaging techniques as well as magnetic, metallic and non-metallic particle-based detection systems, showing combination strategies for both diagnosis and treatment.
The result is a single source, collecting the valuable information published in specialized journals and thus often difficult to locate for members of the other disciplines involved.
