Inorganic nanomaterials as X-ray contrast agents: Inorganic nanomaterials (nanostructures and nanosystems) offer great potential for the development of next-generation contrasting agents for X-ray computed tomography and imaging. This review provides an overview of various heavy metal based nanosystems and their assemblies (e.g., hybrid, core-shell, bioconjugated), with a focus on their synthesis protocol, in vitro/in vivo contrasting properties as well as their potential targeting applications for cancerous tumors and tissues.
