Nanoparticles for the MRI

Dear Sir or Madam,

The sharper the image, the better the diagnosis. But not only the MRI determines the quality of a recording. Contrast agents in patients are used to make tumors more visible. But even here methods can get better. For example nanoparticles can help to significantly increase the contrast ability. How they do it, you can find out in our interview.

Enjoy reading!

An accredited in-vitro test method at Fraunhofer IGB measures the phototoxic potential of substances or cosmetics. The skin model was advanced with the addition of pigmentation that enables the testing of self-tanning agents.
