Magnetically Responsive Hybrid Polymer Colloids for Ultrasensitive Molecular Imaging
Magnetic colloids have been widely explored for biomedical imaging because of their unique magnetism and biocompatibility. Due to continuous interest and role of magnetic colloids for the next generation molecular imaging tool, this review discusses the progression of innovations related to the synthesis of such colloids, and improvements in their functionality to facilitate biomedical imaging. Since magnetic properties of magnetic colloids are of major concern, therefore important techniques of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is elaborated in greater detail as a molecular imaging module. Magnetic colloids applications for noninvasively visualizing various diseases via molecular imaging are also discussed.
