The use of medical imaging has been increased for diagnosis of cancer or vessel disease. Among the medical imaging, computed tomography (CT) is one of the popular methods, however, which should need administration of contrast medium. Therefore, we developed gold coated liposomes (GCL) as a contrast medium. To coat gold on the liposomal surface, positive charged liposomes was prepared and then negative can coat on the liposomal surface by electronic interaction. The size of GCL was nm and surface charge was mV, respectively. The morphology of GCL was confirmed by electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The coating efficiency of gold was 18%. Chemical procedure for gold coating on liposomal surface was not toxic for cell cytotoxicity by MTT assay. Finally, we demonstrated attractive CT image for GCL. Taken together, the GCL would be useful for various vessel related disease as a contrast medium.
