Nanoparticles are used for multiple purposes in many different fields. This Special Issue aims to present recent advances in applications of nanoparticles in biomedical applications, especially in ultrasonic and magnetic fields. Various nanosystems have been explored for ultrasound imaging, photoacoustic imaging, ultrasound therapy (hyperthermia, thermoablation), and ultrasound-triggered drug releasing. Nanoparticles have been also tested for magnetic hyperthermia, for magnetic drug targeting, and as contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging. Recently, a lot of effort has been put into combining more than one method into one treatment. For example, nanoparticles have the dual ability to act as both magnetic and sonosensitizer agents. Magnetic and ultrasonic heating may work synergistically to produce a more efficient treatment. Nanoparticles are also an excellent material for theranostic applications. This Special Issue seeks to report the latest results in the field.
I kindly invite you to submit high-level manuscripts for the Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
