Cancer, Diagnosis, Nanotechnology, Treatment


Nanotechnology is a rapidly increasing area of research and recent advancements have demonstrated its promise in medicinal applications. One such application is in cancer diagnosis and treatment. These led to the creation of innovative, sophisticated applications that diagnose cancer cells, transport medications to target tissue, record treatment outcomes and observe intracellular alterations to assist stop precancerous cells from turning malignant.They assist in the investigation of factors such as cellular mechanics, morphology and cytoskeleton, which have proven difficult to attain with traditional technologies.
