Shape dependent: Fluorescent quantum-dot-based nanospheres and nanorods with identical hydrodynamic size and surface properties but different aspect ratios were developed for real-time in vivo tumor imaging. The nanorods exhibited superior transport and distribution into mammary tumors in vivo versus nanospheres of similar plasma half-life.
