Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) imaging is now an established tool in clinical imaging and competes favourably with conventional X-ray computerized tomography (CT) scanning. The drive behind NMR imaging has primarily been in the area of whole-body imaging, which has been limited clinically to fields of up to 1.5 T (60 MHz). It is recognized that there may(More)
We report proton NMR images obtained at microscopic (less than 30 microns) resolution of EMT6/Ro and HT1080 multicellular tumor spheroids 1.2-1.7 mm in diameter. T1-weighted images showed little contrast across a slice through the spheroid. There was also no difference between the inner and outer spheroid regions when signal intensity was measured as a(More)
We here report the analysis of single rabbit lenses under high-glucose stress using four-dimensional 13C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy (three spatial and one chemical-shift). We have produced spatial maps of lenticular metabolites (glucose, sorbitol, and lactate) with submillimeter in-plane resolution. The production of sorbitol and its(More)
NMR images of subintimal lipid deposits within the vessel walls of atherosclerotic human aortas were obtained at 37 and 27 degrees C at 4.7 T. A combination of a stimulated-echo and pulsed-field gradients was used for suppressing the mobile tissue water relative to the less mobile tissue lipids. At 27 degrees C there was also a substantial reduction of the(More)
Executive Summary This report analyzes the wage and employment effects of the first three city-specific minimum wages We use data from a virtual census of employment in each of the three cities, surrounding suburbs, and nearby metropolitan areas, to estimate the impact of minimum-wage laws on wages and employment in fast food restaurants, food services,(More)
We have applied NMR microimaging at 9.4 T to detect metastatic deposits in the liver of nude mice noninvasively, using an animal model for metastatic colon cancer that mimics several aspects of the human disease. Images were obtained with a resolution of 100 x 100 x 900 microns and the tumor deposits were clearly distinguished from the normal liver tissue(More)
We have studied the effects of two diuretics, selective for renal cortical (furosemide) and inner medullary (vasopressin antagonist) water handling, in rat kidney at 1.5 T and find that furosemide completely dissipates the cortical-inner medullary T2 gradient whereas the vasopressin antagonist has little effect. This phenomenon appears to be related to(More)
