Nanoscale materials are relatively novel materials. They possess extraordinary properties and find applications in technique, engineering, environments, electronics, in molecular and cell biology and nanomedicine. The aim of the work, presented could be formulated as follows: to analyze, to discuss and to generalize recent articles, devoted to application of nanoparticles for detection, diagnostics and new solutions in cancer research, based on nanotechnology. Some methods for clinical applications, using nanoparticles, (In-Vitro Diagnostics, In-Vivo Diagnostics), QDs techniques have been presented as well.
