Since we are talking about biological systems one can actually use a bio-molecule to do the "scanning". Antibodies tagged with a drug/agent can, in theory, selectively deliver a payload to a specific location/cell type (search for antibody guided drugs/chemotherapy).

In practice biological systems are complex so this approach so far has had limited success.
