This work presents a methodology for obtaining quantitative oxygen concentration images in the tumor-bearing legs of living C3H mice. The method uses high-resolution electron paramagnetic resonance imaging (EPRI). Enabling aspects of the methodology include the use of injectable, narrow, single-line triaryl methyl spin probes and an accurate model of(More)
A highly accurate line-width simulation computer program is used that can account for both high amplitude and frequency of the Zeeman modulation in an electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) experiment. This allows for the overmodulation of EPR lines to increase signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in EPR spectra and spectroscopic images, without any sacrifice in the(More)
Electron paramagnetic resonance imaging (EPRI) promises to provide new insights into the physiology of tissues in health and disease. Understanding the in vivo imaging capability of this new modality requires comparison with other physiologically responsive techniques. Here, an initial comparison between 2D EPR spatial imaging of a narrow single line(More)
The cells of the intestinal epithelium provide a selectively permeable barrier between the external environment and internal tissues. The integrity of this barrier is maintained by tight junctions, specialised cell-cell contacts that permit the absorption of water and nutrients while excluding microbes, toxins and dietary antigens. Impairment of intestinal(More)
