Lead-free radiation shields: should we move to nano-sized structures.

The imaging enhancement provided by nanoparticles allows, for example, the detection of tumors when they are still at the early stage of development and can be more easily treated. Nanotechnologies can also be used to provide light-weight, flexible radiation shields for diagnostic radiology and nuclear medicine to replace lead-based products [140]. Therapeutic applications of nanotechnologies include controlledrelease drug delivery systems, for example, with dendrimers, nanotubes, and nanoshells.
