Nanomedicine can provide a multi-functional platform for image-guided diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Although gold nanorods (GNRs) have been developed for photoacoustic (PA) imaging and near infra-red (NIR) photothermal applications, their efficiency has remained limited by low thermal stability. Here we present the synthesis, characterization, and functional evaluation of non-cytotoxic magnetic polymer-modified gold nanorods (MPGNRs), designed to act as dual magnetic resonance imaging (MRI… CONTINUE READING
