Tiny anti-cancer drug delivery capsules are guided to a target inside a human body using an MRI system. Localized delivery of an anti-cancer drug by remote-controlled microcarriers – [polymtl.ca] Soon, drug delivery that precisely targets cancerous cells without exposing the healthy surrounding tissue to the medication’s toxic effects will no longer be an oncologist’s dream […]

Magnetic Resonance Force Microscopy

MRFM (Magnetic Resonance Force Microscopy) is similar to MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) but with resolutions that are one hundred million times better. It offers three dimensional imaging of live biological samples at the extreme limits of microscopy. Researchers at IBM developing this technology have been able to create a 3D image of a virus. A […]
