Highly stable and tumor-specific SPECT/CT imaging nanoparticle probes are described. Cyclic RGD-PEGlyated gold nanoparticle probes with directly conjugated iodine-125 can specifically target αvβ3 integrin-expressing tumor cells and can be taken up by tumor cells via integrin αvβ3-receptor-mediated endocytosis with almost no cytotoxicity. The probes can target tumor sites in vivo only 10 min after intravenous injection. These probes can be excreted after tumor targeting.
