Special Issue "Nanostructures for Bioimaging" in Micromachines

Dear Colleagues, Nanoscopic imaging probes have been established as versatile tools in biomedical imaging, mainly owing to their ability to overcome limitations associated with conventional, molecular imaging agents. The nanostructures can essentially be either 1) inherently detectable by optical or other bioimaging techniques, or 2) be utilized as carriers for molecular imaging agents. Especially inorganic nanostructures finds various applications as bioimaging probes due to their inherent detectability by different imaging modalities, e.g. quantum dots, QDs, for optical imaging and superparamagnetic iron oxides, SPIONs, for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). These can, for instance, be used
