The article discusses the effort of the University of Akron's Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering to pursue research which aims to reduce or eliminate capsular contracture associated with breast implants. It notes that the new multidetector nanotechnology developed by researchers can be better alternative to silicone gel-filled breast implants. It mentions that the new technology can also help in early diagnosis and imaging of breast cancer.
