Nanotechnology is one of the fastest evolving fields which are multidisciplinary in its nature. It is basically about engineering the components like atoms or molecular components in the range of 1 to 100 nm. Noteworthy optical, idiosyncratic electrical and structural properties have led the way to the remarkable development in the interdisciplinary field like that of cancer nanotechnology. Targeted therapy, molecular diagnostic and imaging are the various fields of its application. This has really changed the way we look at cancer. Discovery of biomarkers, invention of the bio conjugated nanoparticle and Nano cantilever arrays are the others. While nanoparticle with their high surface to volume ratio and novel properties has tremendously increased our knowledge of it and carve the way for early detection, specific diagnosis, and personalized oncology. Quantum dots having all the three dimensions in nanometer range are among the prime area of research in early detection. In this article, I will elaborate over the quantum dot and its application in cancer imaging leading to the personalized oncology.
