Novel Multimodality Imaging Approaches to Target Metastatic Cancers
The Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence at Johns Hopkins University is focused on nanotechnology-based in vitro assays, targeted chemotherapy, and immunotherapy for lung and pancreatic cancers. Utilizing their metastatic model of melanoma, the image shown here is a fusion of lung (CAT scan, in solid yellow) and their molecular-genetic imaging technique that highlights the metastatic lesions (SPECT image, covering from blue-to-red that correlates lesion density).
