MRI has been employed to elucidate the migratory behavior of stem/progenitor cells noninva‐sively in vivo with traditional proton (1H) imaging of iron oxide nanoparticle‐labeled cells. Alternatively, we demonstrate that fluorine (19F) MRI of cells labeled with different types of liquid perfluorocarbon (PFC) nanoparticles produces unique and sensitive cell markers distinct from any tissue background signal. To define the utility for cell tracking, mononuclear cells harvested from human umbilical… Expand
In Vivo Tracking of Human Neural Stem Cells with 19F Magnetic Resonance Imaging
TLDR
It is shown for the first time that 19F MRI can be utilized for tracking human NSCs in brain implantation studies, which ultimately aim for restoring loss of function after acute and neurodegenerative disorders. Expand

A unique 19F MRI agent for the tracking of non phagocytic cells in vivo.
TLDR
Preliminary in vivo data demonstrate that labelled cells can be readily detected within a short acquisition scan period (12 minutes), and these copolymers show outstanding potential for 19F MRI cellular tracking and for quantification of non-phagocytic and therapeutically-relevant cells in vivo.

Tracking the Fate of Stem Cell Implants with Fluorine-19 MRI
TLDR
The results show that 19F-MRI is an excellent tool for verifying the delivery of therapeutic cells early after transplantation, however, in certain circumstances the transfer of cellular label to other bystander cells may confuse interpretation of the long-term fate of the transplanted cells.

Use of perfluorocarbon nanoparticles for non-invasive multimodal cell tracking of human pancreatic islets.
TLDR
Perfluorocarbon nanoparticles are multimodal cellular contrast agents that may find applications in real-time targeted delivery and imaging of transplanted human islets or other cells in a clinically applicable manner using MRI, US or CT imaging. Expand
Monitoring dendritic cell migration using 19F / 1H magnetic resonance imaging.
TLDR
An emerging technique for tracking cells in vivo that is based on labeling the cells with fluorine ((19)F)-rich particles is described, which has important advantages of the absence of carbon-bound PFCs for cell tracking in vivo and the possibility to quantify the cell signal by MR spectroscopy.

TLDR
This magnetic labeling methodology can be used with any antibody coupled to a magnetic particle to target any surface antigen that distinguishes transplanted cells from host cells, thus facilitating studies that define methods and strategies for clinical cell therapy programs. Expand
Perfluorocarbon Particle Size Influences Magnetic Resonance Signal and Immunological Properties of Dendritic Cells
TLDR
The data suggest that increasing particle size is one important feature for optimizing cell labeling by PFCE particles, but may also present possible pitfalls such as alteration of the immunological status of these cells. Expand
