"Chemical Equation Presented" Gold nanoprobe: Heparin-DOPAcoated gold nanoparticles (HEPAAuNPs) showed low toxicity, prolonged stability, and an enhanced Xray absorption coefficient in vitro. In vivo microCT images showed that HEPA-AuNPs produced enhanced liver-specific CT images compared with iodine-based contrast agents, thus highlighting its potential as a novel, liver-specific CT imaging agent (see figure).
