(ND) has emerged as an intriguing material in recent years both
industrially and in research. During the last decade, ND has furthered
its way into the biomedical field, mainly due to its inherent photoluminescent
properties. In parallel, the development of advanced biomedical imaging
methods and techniques has faced a steep upswing, making these two a
‘perfect match’. The optical and physical properties of ND can be tuned,
rendering them highly interesting as versatile biomedical imaging
probes. In this short review, we will cover a few of the most recently
emerged applications of NDs in biomedical imaging and contemplate on
current challenges and future directions.
