Abstract:
    Plant viral nanoparticles (VNPs) are efficient tools for medical imaging and disease-targeting. Unlike artificial imaging agents, they are, non-toxic, non-infectious in humans, and very stable.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    The consumer needs stable health services. By replacing artificial imaging agent with VNPs, we will be upgrading the imaging quality, and maximizing medical efficacy.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Medical industry needs this information direly. They can easily detect all the diseases which are originally detectable in MRI, on a more enhanced level. It
How will the solution works
    The solution plans on replacing the traditionally used Artificial imaging agents with the more efficient Virus Nano Particles. They can be used for medical imaging and unlike artificial imaging agents, they are more good at identifying disease-effected areas. Also, they are non-toxic, non-infectious and highly stable biological agents. By doing disease detection on a more enhanced level, medical industry can be more efficient and swift.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    There are no competitors. This idea is completely new and never-applied before.
