PURPOSE The acquisition of ever increasing volumes of high resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data has created an urgent need to develop automated and objective image analysis algorithms that can assist in determining tumor margins, diagnosing tumor stage, and detecting treatment response. METHODS We have shown previously that Minkowski(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively determine in an animal model whether an ionic gadolinium (Gd(3+)) chelate conjugate of the C2A domain of synaptotagmin I can be used with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging to detect tumor cell death noninvasively in vivo. MATERIALS AND METHODS Animal experiments were approved by a local ethics review committee. Gd(3+) chelates and(More)
A targeted Gd(3+)-based contrast agent has been developed that detects tumor cell death by binding to the phosphatidylserine (PS) exposed on the plasma membrane of dying cells. Although this agent has been used to detect tumor cell death in vivo, the differences in signal intensity between treated and untreated tumors was relatively small. As cell death is(More)
OBJECTIVES Conventional imaging techniques are insensitive to liver fibrosis. This study assesses the diagnostic accuracy of MR elastography (MRE) stiffness values and the ratio of phosphomonoesters (PME)/phosphodiesters (PDE) measured using (31)P spectroscopy against histological fibrosis staging. METHODS The local research ethics committee approved this(More)
A 110 kDa (ca. 5 nm in diameter) bivalent paramagnetic nanoprobe for detecting cell death using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is described, in which two biotinylated C2A domains of the protein synaptotagmin-I were complexed with a single avidin molecule, which had been labeled with gadolinium chelates. This nanoprobe bound with high affinity and(More)
The pulmonary artery is affected by a multitude of conditions that can be congenital or acquired. These disorders may be detected incidentally, or the clinical features of the different conditions may overlap. This pictorial review illustrates the imaging findings of some of the main conditions that affect the pulmonary artery by considering them in 3 main(More)
