"Stealth Imaging with Iron Nanoparticles" is an 8-minute video that tells the research story of Ralph Weissleder and Mukesh Harisinghani, who collaborated on the design of a clinical trial to determine if an injection of specially-designed iron-oxide nanoparticles could enhance a diagnostic image produced by an MRI machine to the extent that the spread of cancer could be accurately assessed. At least in the case of prostate cancer, as Dr. Weissleder tells our producer in this story, "The results were stunning." Dr. Weissleder and Dr. Harisinghani's experimental cancer therapy is one of several new nanomedicine-based approaches to cancer treatment that is explored in the Nanomedicine Explorer kiosk, website and DVD (also found in the NISE Network catalog and here: nanomedicine-explorer.net/).
