Abstract : The invention discloses nanoparticles comprising compounds of calcium with anions such as phosphate, pyrophosphate, sulphate, silicate, carbonate, molybdate, or phosphosilicate that are doped with various ions. The nanoparticles are configured to produce heat (hyperthermia) under radio-wave (1KHz-1000GHz) exposure together with magnetism suitable for contrast imaging in MRI, X-ray absorption for computed tomography, near-infrared optical fluorescence for optical imaging, and/or radio-isotope emission for nuclear imaging or therapy. The nanoparticles can also be incorporated into micro-beads or other 3 dimensional scaffolds for image-guided (MRI, CT, NIR, nuclear) tissue regeneration, vascular or tumor embolization, and/or chemo/radio-embolization.
