According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Furthermore, apart from the application for targeted drug delivery, the as-prepared core-shell mUCNPs could also be employed as the contrast agents for X-ray computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, because of the strong X-ray attenuation ability of Yb and high longitudinal molar relaxivity (r(1)) of Gd in the nanoparticles, providing the potential for simultaneously bio-imaging and cancer-targeting therapy."
