A dual function theranostic agent for near-infrared photoacoustic imaging and photothermal therapy
Theranostic, defined as combining diagnostic and therapeutic agents, has attracted more attention in biomedical application. It is essential to monitor diseased tissue before treatment. Photothermal therapy (PTT) is a ...
Contrast-enhanced photoacoustic imaging in the second near-infrared window using semiconducting polymer nanoparticles
Photoacoustic imaging (PAI) is a fast growing deep-tissue imaging modality. However, light scattering and absorption in biological tissues limit imaging depth. Short near-infrared wavelengths (650 to 950 nm) are widely ...
A dual-functional benzobisthiadiazole derivative as an effective theranostic agent for near-infrared photoacoustic imaging and photothermal therapy
It is essential to monitor and understand the diseased tissue before starting the treatments. Recently, many efforts have been devoted to explore theranostic agents that encapsulate therapeutic agents and diagnostic probes ...
