Activatable nanoprobe: A dual-function nanoprobe has been developed that detects membrane type 1-matrix metalloproteinase (MT1-MMP) activity by a dual-signal increase in complementary fluorescence imaging (FI) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MNCs=magnetic nanocrystals, Q=quencher, F=fluorescence dye.
