In vivo photoacoustic mapping of lymphatic systems with plasmon-resonant nanostars.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Plasmon-resonant nanostars (NSTs) provide excellent contrast enhancement for photoacoustic tomography. The high photoacoustic sensitivity of NSTs at near-infrared wavelengths enable their in vivo detection in rat sentinel lymph nodes and vessels, with direct application toward lymphangiography.
