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.
