Introduction: A significant clinical problem with brain metastatic (BM) tumors is drug delivery and diagnostic imaging to verify MRI enhancement(s) for planning treatment. MRI enhancement in cancer patient9s brain might result from infection after chemotherapy that impairs immune system; metastasis from primary lung/breast cancer; or a new primary brain tumor. Unlike lung/breast, brain biopsies are often technically impossible. Therefore, there is urgent need for the development of effective… Expand
