This review focuses on imaging, visualization and detection of diseases using nanoprobes. Several currently available nanoprobes such as fluorescent nanoprobes, upconversion nanoparticle probes, super magnetic iron oxide nanoprobes, and polymer- and liposome based nanoprobes are discussed. This paper also briefly summarizes the methodologies used to image and track single cells, tumors, cancer cells, brain diseases and angiogenic vasculature. Current challenges and future scopes of research are also discussed.
