Advances in nanotechnology have fueled a paradigm shift in targeting and safely delivering peptide/proteins and drugs in conjunction with image-directed approaches.

The size, architecture, and chemical composition of particle-based drug delivery vehicles can be fine-tuned to achieve properties optimal for loading and controlled release of diagnostic/therapeutic agents, patient safety/compliance, favorable kinetic profiles, and reducing unwanted side effects. By combining particle tracer preparations with quantitative bioimaging approaches, probe delivery, target localization, and extraction of key tumor biologic properties can be achieved for individualizing treatment planning.
