We have designed and synthesised a novel liposome formulation, capable of releasing encapsulated drug on targeting/heating by focussed ultrasound (FUS) for cancer therapy and being visualised by MRI due to the incorporation of gadolinium chelates. We show the novel liposomes are targeted to tumours by FUS and MRI-visible in vivo and thus, suitable for theranostic applications in cancer.
