University at Buffalo researchers are developing a new imaging technique involving nanoparticles suspended in liquid to form 'nanojuice', which, after reaching the small intestine, doctors would strike the nanoparticles with a harmless laser light, providing an unparalleled, non-invasive, real-time view of the organ.
In laboratory experiments performed with mice, the researchers administered the nanojuice orally.
