Submission + - Nanoparticles paint a precise picture of brain tumors before and during surgery (gizmag.com)

cylonlover writes: Scientists at Stanford University’s School of Medicine have created coated gold nanoparticles that are able to precisely highlight brain tumors. Because the nanoparticles can be imaged in three different ways, they can be used to delineate the boundaries of tumors before and during brain surgery to ease the complete removal of tumors. The scientists have already used the nanoparticles to remove brain tumors from mice with unprecedented accuracy and hope the technique could be used on humans in the future.
