Abstract

The results of numerous studies have led to the development of supramolecular (assembled) organic substances for use in biomedical imaging as part of comprehensive approaches to the diagnosis of diseases. This review summarizes recent advances that have been made in the design and fabrication of assembled organic dyes for fluorescence and photoacoustic bioimaging.
