Scientists Develop Novel Chemical 'Dye' To Improve Liver Cancer Imaging, National University of Singapore (NUS) Study

Published: May 03, 2017

Scientists from the National University of Singapore (NUS) have developed a novel nanodiamond-based contrast agent -- a chemical "dye" used to enhance the visibility of internal body structures in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) -- that improves visualisation of liver cancer tumours. Better and more sensitive imaging contributes towards detecting liver cancer and is crucial for planning for treatment.
