The purpose of this work is to synthesize Mn-Fe heterodoped ZnSe tetrapod nanocrystals (NCs) as dual-mode MRI contrast agent to offer synergetic beneficial over the single contrast tracer. Also, in vivo feasibility of the Mn-Fe heterodoped ZnSe tetrapod NCs as a dual-mode contrast agent has been studied.
