Nanoparticles (NP) are promising contrast agents for positron emission tomography (PET) radionuclide imaging that can increase signal intensity by localizing clusters of PET radionuclides together. However, methods to load NPs with PET radionuclides suffer from harsh loading conditions or poor loading efficacies or result in NP surface modifications that alter targeting in vivo. We present the formation of water-dispersible, polyethylene glycol coated NPs that encapsulate phthalocyanines into… CONTINUE READING
