Nanoparticle Imaging & Theranostics

A distinct advantage of choosing magnetic nanoparticles is the transparency of tissue to magnetic fields permitting detection, localization, manipulation and thermal activation of nanoparticles within the body. There are many potential diagnostic and therapy applications such as study of cell biophysics, novel bio-assays and bio-forensics, drug delivery, detection and removal

Sensors for Lymph Node Staging

Sensors for Lymph Node Staging

Many primary tumors spread via lymphatic drainage, therefore lymph node staging and localization of pathological lymph nodes remains a cornerstone in choosing the most appropriate intervention. Non-invasive methods such as ultrasonography, CT, PET to stage regional lymph nodes have not shown to be accurate. Sentinel lymph nodes (SLN) can also

Prenatal Diagnostics & Neuroassesment

Prenatal Diagnostics & Neuroassesment

There is a strong demand to develop new diagnostics tools for accurate assessment of the neurophysiological development of the fetus as more pre- and full-term babies survive with various disorders. In fact, the rate of premature birth has increased by more than 30 percent in two decades, and now accounts

Magnetocardiography

Magnetocardiography

Non-invasive diagnostic methods that are sensitive but also specific enough to identify subjects with very early stages of heart disease would be an important addition to the technologies currently available. Magnetocardiography (MCG) is a very sensitive method for detecting cardiac bioelectrical activity non-invasively by an array of super-sensitive magnetic field
