A novel fiber-reinforced material for the realization of MR guidewires, made using a newly-developed production process, is presented. The MR-safe artificial material provides a high stiffness and torque and allows the production, in a large range of sizes, of nonmetallic MR guidewires with similar mechanical properties as conventional metallic guidewires.(More)
Endothelial and fibroblast-like cells comprise 5%-10% of total cardiac cell volume and are more resistant to hypoxia than cardiomyocytes. However, their role in the uptake of radiotracers used for myocardial perfusion imaging has largely been ignored. Net uptake of 201TI and 99mTc-hexakis-2-methoxyisobutylisonitrile (99mTc-sestamibi) by cultured rat heart(More)
