  • Human breast cancer cells are injected into the mouse. After the nanoparticles are injected, researchers are able to see the tumor glowing using a laser to activate the nanoparticles and an infrared camera to detect their fluorescence.

  • The ReANCs allow cancer to be illuminated in the leg bone and liver (images a and c), and lungs (images b and d) of this mouse. The bone lesions were able to be seen when the animal was on its stomach and the lung lesions were seen when animals was imaged while on its back.
