This review article presents the state-of-the-art in the major imaging modalities supplying relevant information on patient health by real-time monitoring to establish an accurate diagnosis and potential treatment plan. We draw a comprehensive comparison between all imagers and ultimately end with our focus on two main types of scanners: X-ray CT and MRI scanners. Numerous types of imaging probes for both imaging techniques are described, as well as reviewing their strengths and limitations, thereby showing the current need for the development of new diagnostic contrast agents (CAs). The role of nanoparticles in the design of CAs is then extensively detailed, reviewed and discussed. We show how nanoparticulate agents should be promising alternatives to molecular ones and how they are already paving new routes in the field of nanomedicine.
