“Compared to a solid gold marker, they [BioXmark® markers] had favorable results in both visibility and induced imaging artifacts [in MRI and CT]. Hence, the liquid marker provides a minimally
invasive (fine needles) and highly applicable alternative to current solid gold markers for multi-modal image-guided prostate radiotherapy.”

Fiducial markers with unique features for accurate target marking to enable high-precision radiation therapy
”I founded Nanovi on a vision. A vision of substantially improving the treatment of cancer patients receiving radiation therapy and/or surgery via increased procedure precision. In both fields, technology advancements over past decades have made image-guided procedures available for better therapeutic outcome. However, to leverage the full potential of image-guided therapy there is a need for flexible fiducial markers to enable optimal tumor visualization across cancer types. Building on my expertise in biomaterial compositions for medical applications, we invented the carbo-gel technology platform as the basis for the development of novel liquid fiducial markers with unique features for precise target marking to support high-precision radiotherapy and surgery.”
