'Gadonanotubes' greatly outperform existing MRI contrast agents

... Lon Wilson, professor of chemistry at Rice. "Each nanotube will hold more gadolinium atoms than a buckyball, so we expected them to be more effective agents. But they are actually much, much better than we anticipated, so much so that no existing theory can explain how they work." Wilson and colleagues use ...
