Abstract

Smart cyanine-grafted gadolinium oxide nanocrystals (Cy-GdNCs) obtained by albumin-based biomineralization are shown to be theranostic nanocomposites, with promising properties for trimodal near-infrared fluorescence/photoacoustics/magnetic-resonance imaging-guided photothermal tumor ablation.
