Phototheranostics, which simultaneously combines photodynamic and/or photothermal therapy with deep-tissue diagnostic imaging, is a promising strategy for the diagnosis and treatment of cancers. Organic dyes with the merits of strong near-infrared absorbance, high photo-to-radical and/or photothermal conversion efficiency, great biocompatibility, ready… CONTINUE READING
