Recently, in the field of materials science with medical applications the major challenge is the synthesis of new materials that can be used for both diagnosis and therapy, especially in the treatment of cancer disease. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive powerful tool used in medicine to diagnose tumours, nerve and meniscus lesions or blood vessels condition. In certain situations, the use of contrast agents is required for diagnostic accuracy. Contrast agents that besides contrast properties in magnetic resonance can also be used for targeted treatments of the diseases could be called ”theranostic” MRI Contrast agents.
