Think small--really small. Some nanotechnology devices are as small as one nanometer, or 1/80,000th the width of a human hair. At these sizes, it is no wonder that scientists have seized upon nanotechnology for its potential in medical applications. In the not-too-distant future, as this slide show reveals, dozens of nanodevices may transform cancer diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. This page provides information on how nanotechnology may be used to treat cancer. It includes an interactive piece with illustrations and reading materials.
