Nanoparticle based contrast agent developed for dual modal imaging of cancer

June 20, 2017
World Scientific
Dual modal imaging which shares the advantages of two imaging modalities such as magnetic resonance imaging and optical imaging, has the ability to produce images with higher spatial resolution and higher sensitivity. Contrast agents having both magnetic and optical properties identifies the cancer cells efficiently. Europium doped gadolinium oxide nanorods were synthesized and subsequently coated with silica to improve the biocompatibility.

PTSD, New Treatment

Good day, all, I saw an article yesterday about using an anesthesia block on a nerve that controls something to do with the horror of trauma.  I am posting from a Windows device.  It is slow and sloppy.  This nerve block in the neck has some promise of neutralizing some nervous systems want to kill another person.  I am not sure.  If effective, it may promise some new hope for our troops with PTSD.  My Windows tablet will not allow me to post the link.  Go to Drudge, and find the link.  Look in his archives.  I am busy with other things.  I will be back.  TJW  PS, this is for you, John.
