Faster, More Accurate Cancer Detection Using Nanoparticles, Rutgers-Led Study Finds

Light-emitting nanoprobes can detect cancer early and track the spread of tiny tumors

Using light-emitting nanoparticles, Rutgers University-New Brunswickscientists have invented a highly effective method to detect tiny tumors and track their spread, potentially leading to earlier cancer detection and more precise treatment.

The technology, announced today, could improve patient cure rates and survival times.
