Medical nanorobot. Computer artwork of a nanorobot in a blood vessel. It is removing a deposit on the vessel wall. This could be an atheroma, a fatty deposit that thickens the inner surface of arteries, causing vascular disease. In the future, microscopic robots such as these could be used to treat or diagnose diseases from within.
