Abstract

Significant advances in the design and understanding of the materials and systems of 1-100 nm have provided unprecedented tools to probe, diagnose, and treat diseases at the molecular level with greater efficiency and accuracy. In particular, optical and chemical properties of nanomaterials are being exploited to improve the effectiveness of neuro-oncological and neurosurgical interventions. Modern nanotechnology-driven clinical applications may have significant impact on management of brain tumors.
