Abstract

The novel nano-seaurchin structure is characteristic of high-density and well-dispersed gold nanorods in one mesoporous silica nanobead. This nanoplatform provided increased photothermal stability, stable photoacoustic signal and highly efficient hyperthermia effect both in vitro and in vivo, indicating a powerful theranostic modality.
