Researchers have developed the first biosensor that can be used in vivo, inside a body, able to emit signals that can be detected by common ultrasound scanners. The technology has been granted an international provisional patent. The team developed a nanoparticle that alters its stiffness in response to pH changes in the body, with these changes picked up by ultrasound.
