New Tissue Glue Can be Clearly Seen With X-Rays and Ultrasound

Nanoparticles made with a shell of silica (SiO2) and a core of radiopaque tantalum oxide (TaOx) are used to make a tissue adhesive and visible to ultrasound, X-ray, and fluorescent imaging. This is the first such tissue glue to have this set of properties, and, if approved for clinical applications, may end up displacing other adhesives because it can be later easily monitored as to how it’s holding tissues together.
